Default Saltwater lines

I need some opinions/suggestions for modestly-priced, all around saltwater fly lines in 10wt.

I've been eyeballing the Mainstream, but I know enough to know that I don't know....get it?

All opine's welcomed.

Are you looking for a tropical line or a cold saltwater line?

The taper to the Rio Mainstream line is good for general purpose fishing. It is not as slick as higher end Rio saltwater specialty lines.

If you look hard enough, you could find Sage's Equator Taper floating line for $30. It is a wonderful casting line. It has a good taper that helps throw anything from sparse tarpon flies to weighed down Clouserish flies. I use one on my 12 weight when I go on my Mexican Dorado trips.

The discontinued "Equator II" was built for Sage by RIO and one sale would be a fine line for you.

The Rio Mainstream Saltwater is so close to the Tropical Clouser it is scary. Almost the same taper and feel. I have both for my 7wt. and the Mainstream is about half the price. Very tough stuff and casts great even in winter in Florida. Yes, it gets a little chilly!
