Default Re: Line: where and what to buy?

I like Glide and Agent X for a long lasting treatment. Applied right, by letting it kick a while before buffing it in makes for a very slick, semi dry line treatment. For a quick juicing like when the line gets sticky in the salt, the SA line treatment slicks the line up quite well and works whether the line is wet or dry.
My real favorite though on lines that can handle it like SA with AST and Rio with their modern coatings are the SA cleaning pads. The grey side is a micro-abrasive that takes a minute amount of surface off and brings a fresh, dry surface to the top. It really makes those lines as close to new as you can get without plopping down another $80.00 and being dry, doesn't seem to attract crud like the wet treatments.
I'm just a nut when it comes to fly lines. They are such an intregal part of a well tuned fly fishing system that they can easily make or break it when it comes to having a rig that sings.
