On a whim, I stopped into Bass Pro and picked up a new reel for my 5w. I wanted a larger arbor than what I have with the Martin reel... Down to the flyline - I had Rio Gold or SA Mastery on my mind but I started checking out the Vanguard line for 25 bux less and decided to give it a try. The guy said they had some great reviews come back from a few regulars that are on the hard core side with fly fishing.

I took it on the water this evening and had a blast with it. Casts nice, straightens out perfect and the tip only sank a little when hitting fast water. The 2 tone line made a big difference for me and I'll give it an all around A+. Has anyone else tried this line? I'm just wondering if anyone else has feedback.
