    I recently had a very good experience with Scientific Anglers 3M and have about ten or more of the Mastery lines and a Spey line from them. No complaints here.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    My go-to line for rainbows in lakes is either a Cortland "Ghost Tip" or Rio clear intermediate. The Cortland resists getting stiffer in cold water. And the rio flys through the guides and fishes very nicely. I catch more on the Cortland though.

    Ditto on the clear intermediate sinker. That was my line of choice for Shad fishing on the Russian River in Nor-Kal. Doubled the number of 'hook ups' as soon as I moved from a sink tip to the clear 'full sinker.'

    Go figure?

    I switched all my lines over to Sage's (made by Rio and so stated on the box) Performance taper II lines. While they are 70 dollar lines, they can be found on ebay in the 30 dollar range. I have not paid more than 40 for line weights 2 thru 9. They are very slick lines, no memory, etc. Love 'em.

    If Allen Co. had clear sink tips or intermediates I would try them. But I think I appreciate the extra performance I get on those days where the conditions are tough and my line isn`t letting me down. I have confidence in both Cortland and Rio. If money is an issue however, Flextec makes clear intermediates etc for cheap. One thing with them is that you should go one weight lower I think. But you can cast across a 25mph wind like nothing.

    Hook and Hackle Hi-Floater is my choice and it is way less than $60. That is pretty much all I buy now.

    Since the reels were mentioned in this (recently bumped) thread, I'll add that the low end ($20. and $40. =/-) Cabelas reels are on sale @$10. and $20.
    I'm in the market for a 3 wt line for a rod I picked up last week end and I'm intrigued by all the talk about the Allen's but I really prefer DT lines and they don't offer them.
    Someone talk me into it.

    Didn't see this question til now, so perhaps an answer is unnecessary, but here it is anyway. Shipping was dirt cheap. $1.10 or something like that!!

    Hey Greatcanadian, how much was shipping for your Allen lines(assuming you're currently residing in Canada)? I recently bought 2 rio lines so I won't be needing any more lines anytime soon, but I'm still pretty curious.
