This is my current line of choice on my 8wt steelhead rod. The line has an extended back taper so it is terrific for mending, roll casting. I generally fish on the tributary streams off lake Michigan and Erie where the game is mainly deep nymphing in waters with limited back casting room. So roll casts and effective mending are key tactics one must use. This line has greatly improved my ability in both these areas as compared to a traditional WF line.

It also shoots very well, so even a mid pack caster like myself can hit distant targets. The only downside is that, I had to go to a larger fly reel (or deeper arbor) to fit the requisite backing and this line comfortably.
