    Default 8wt. Line Redfish/Specks/Bones?

    I am completely baffled by all the choices in Saltwater lines for the mentioned species.

    I know there will be a bunch of different preferences and experiences with lines. I'm just looking for suggestions and general guidance.

    Also, is there a good textured or ridged line that has a suitable taper for Redfish?

    SA Titan Taper
    For Saltwater? The SA website rates the Tital Taper as a "Mild Climate" Freshwater Line.

    Would it do ok in heat and salt?

    A very good fishing friend of mine lives down by mosquito lagoon and fishes that line exclusively down there. I've never heard a complaint from him and I've fished down there in some super warm weather with that line and have not had any problems.

    Thanks Much - It sounds like an awesome choice for my Sage TCX (Broomstick!).

    Now you have me thinking about trout lines for my 5wt Sage XP - Also a Broomstick

    Trout trout or saltwater speckled trout??

    If you are talking regular trout, I am of no use

    Sorry it was an "off topic" comment - Yes I was referring to regular river trout with my 5wt XP. I bet one of the similar lines for freshwater (like GPX), maybe even overlining, would help me cast even better.

    I am definitely a fan of the GPX series for a good all purpose line. Depending on conditions of where you fish, there might be better options though. I'd start a new thread for that one!
