No, but I was told by an Airflo sales rep that it is 1/2 to 3/4 line size heavy, similar to Rio Grand and Sci Anglers GPX.

I have not fished it yet, so this is of no help to you, but I bought one for my 7wt for carp fishing. I have heard good things, but that is all...just heard. Apparently they don't float as high as some of the Rio and SA lines, but are suppose to last a really really long time.

If you want the line for a medium action rod, you could give the Super-Dri Elite a go.

Any new updates about this line?
I am interested in getting this Exceed or the Rio Gold for my 4wt fast rod.

I'm getting it in next week. I cast it on a 6 weight loop cross s1 and it was a very nice casting line!

I just put it on my Hardy Zenith 9' 4wt, based on the feeling when I demo'd the 8'6" vs the 9'. I was surprised with the difference between the two, and really felt the 9' needed just a bit more line weight, just a bit, not a whole line size.

For this rod, it's a great match. Nice touch up close, reaches out at 50' just as nicely. Shoots quietly, which I really like. Loops on both ends, another thing I like.

I'm not sure it's the right line for another rod, you'd have to try it to be sure. Rod and line and caster must all work together for optimal performance, so all I can say is the for me, and my Zenith, it's the bomb. JMO
sweetandsalt and runningfish like this.

James, the Exceed is actually for the same Zenith that you have. A couple of days ago I just bought a zenith 4wt 9ft and looking for an alternative line other than the Rio Gold.

I'm really happy with it. Hope it makes you smile as much as mine does to me!

I'll give it a try.
btw, does the line really float higher, supple and repel junks as advertised?
