The weight forward will shoot line better and the DT may roll cast better at a distance
The DT is also reversible for added value
I can't recommend a specific line.... I use $10 factory seconds
When I started using a higher end floating line years ago, I was surprised to find what a difference it made in both my casting distance and accuracy. for some of us, a better line does help. Maybe more so for beginners?
Where does one find $10 factory seconds fly lines?
