Re: Choosing fly line -- Redington CT 9' 4wt
While I don't have the CT, I have several 4wts that I rotate lines through. One of those lines is Rio Gold (older version) and another is Airflo Supple Tactical. I've found the Airflo line is a little better suited for dries than the Gold but by a nose. Airflo makes that line in both WF and DT versions.
Gold has long been a staple for me, but evidently, I need to consider alternatives if the line moved from .25 to .5 line over. Mastery Trout may be one such alternative. I have not weighted these but if you believe the data on Rio's website, their new Perception line in 4wt has a head mass of 155 Grains vs. Rio Gold's 175 vs. Grand's 165. If Grand is 1 full size up and Gold is .25 or .5 or whatever the claim is, why is Grand's head mass less than Gold?
