SA Mastery is a whole "line" of fly lines (pun intended). They range in retail price from $45-$70, and there are taper designs for many different purposes (GPS (General Purpose), Streamer, Sink, Saltwater, etc.).

Which SA Mastery line did you buy?

Hi luke,

You will like the line and $40 is the going rate at stores.

luked - the Headstart is a half line weight heavy, to help beginners experience the feel of a rod loading more easily.

Retail is $39.99, so you didn't get much of a bargain, but you didn't overpay either.

I got one a couple of years ago and loaded it on my 4wt, since the other half heavy lines weren't built down to a 4wt. Most of my fishing is close combat wading for carp, or fishing from my skiff, and casts are generally less than 25 feet. The half heavy helps a little in that situation. I like the line.
