Default Sage Performance Taper II Fly Line - any good?

I've got the opportunity to buy this line for about half price and was wondering if anyone had any opinion on it?

It's a good line. Sage's sister company, Rio, produces it. It has a good all around trout taper. It has a nice slick finish.

MP

edit: The half off version that you are getting is last year's line. It lacks have a welded loop. The 2010 version of this line has the welded loop.

I know this is some serious Necro-posting, but any more info on the Sage Lines?

They are again on clearance at Cabelas ($29) and I'm curious.

Necro posting...that's a good one! I switched all my lines from 2-9wt over to Sage Performance Taper II's. I like them that much.

Are these all 1/2 weight over lines? Meaning heavy for fast taper rods?

I believe these are 1/2 over lines. Sage says designed to work with our fast action rods or something to that effect. I have one in 4 weight and it matches well with the Z-Axis.

Never weighed 'em or whatever, no clue. They just work good on Loomis NativeRun GLX's, Sage RPL+ and a variety of Orvis rods. I guess you get to draw your own conclusions, I don't know anything about line weights beyond what it says on the box.

I fished one on my 6wt VXP for two seasons. I was happy with it, not sure if it's a 1/2 wt line though.
