I was thinking about the SA GPX because of its general purpose but someone mentioned that it may be a bit heavy for the action of the rod.
I was also thinking of the SA Mastery Trout. However after reading the posts on this thread I am wondering if I should forget about SA line and go for the SAGE Performance Taper.
Your suggestions and advice are appreciated.
I will have to agree that the GPX may not be the best line for your SLT.
If Salmon is your target fish then I would be using SA's Steelhead floating line. For Salmon I would prefer a SA sink tip line. The sink tip is proportional to the line size. So a 7wt would have a longer sink tip than a 5WT.
You might want to consider the RIO Gold line. It is intended to be an all around line. It might mate with the SLT action pretty good. You really need more than one line to fish both Salmon and Trout.
