LL BEan has SA's Expert Distance on sale for $20
! I had to buy and try one before dropping the big $$$$
. I used it this afternoon for several
hours, and love it. In close and out far, great accuracy and ease of casting.
I like the green mist color as well, but while it has the AST coating, it lacks
the welded loop. No problems with a nail knotted section of butt material.
It's thinner than SA's GPX, and I might like it better. That's unfortunate as
I have several GPX lines still in the box. Hopefully I kept the receipts, and can
get 3 Expert Distance lines for the price of one GPX!!!! The line float great,
and nothing odd or funky to report.
