Default Re: A Question For the Experts

Airflo does have a presentation biased line called Ridge Rangefinder, better than their Delta but not as good ad the SA Textured Trout Stalker or RIO Gold. Read my review of Trout Stalker in "Gear Reviews", a terrific line that might be just right, however, optimally you must try a few lines to truly fine tune a rod/line mating. So many times a new rod I acquire does not like the line "I" like, but one I might well not have considered. I would call Winston and ask their opinion (but not take it as "fact"). Assuming the rod is true to weight rating, the designs I prefer in light dry fly rods are (the envelop please): SA Trout Stalker, Mastery Distance (#4 and above), RIO Gold (NEW VERSION!), Airflo Tactical (better in 5 and 6 because it has "kick") and I am anxious to fish Cortland's new "Boss".
