    Yep. No way the new "technology" is worth $50 more. No way. Take advantage of the sale! Hell, I wish I had some mad money because that is way worth buying one for later.

    I hate those right-facing-fish lines! They stink! I only use the left-facing-fish lines and have never been disappointed.

    Oh man. I feel silly now. How did I miss that? I'll have to get the first box, because I usually net fish that are facing to the left.

    The newer line also has welded loops at both ends!

    Hopefully they actually cast the same.

    What knot do you guys use to attack backing to a welded loop? I've always had lines that didn't have a back loop and simply used a nail knot to attack the backing.

    Use a loop to loop connection. I use a Bimini Twist in the backing but a surgeons loop or for that matter any nonslip loop knot will work. With that connection you can change out a fly line in a snap. Make the loop big enough to fit over the reel.
