Default Any opinions on Cabela's Prestige Premier fly line

I'm looking to get some 6wt line on a trout rod. Will be fishing mostly dry and some nymphs on small streams/rivers. Anyone have any experience with this line. It is relatively new.

Regards,
Peter

Yes...I have it on my 5 Weight......very solid line but I wouldn't buy more until its 50% off from Cabelas.....I think now its $45 ....25% off their regular $60 price. Over the last few years they changed their pricing....the great thing about Cabelas was their own products usually stood up to Premuim Priced brands at a reasonable discount price now they want to start charging premium prices too ...LOL

Thanks Walt. Do you know if this a Scientific Angler product? If so what is it comparable to in their line?

Regards,
Peter

I'd personally look on ebay for a 6wt line than pay $45 for a Cabela's Line... Was worth it when it was $30.... Was a deal when it would be on sale for $20... Not so sure about $60! Better line can be had for $45

Cabela's lines are decent for the money. I personally would only buy if it was discounted. A little searching on the auction site will find premium lines for near wholesale prices. Another place to look is cabelas bargain cave. There should be some premium lines in there for over half off because they have been discontinued for 2013. Cabela's lines are all made by Cortland for those who were wondering.

The Cabela's in my area very often have the prestige lines in the bargain bin. I've picked them up in store, at large discounts, and have been very happy with the 18-26$ paid.
