    Can't help with the Rio LT. If it wasn't for the dark color of Rio lines I would be using them I suppose. I'm going on two year use and fan of the SA heritage ultra WF3F and WF4F for my 3wt and 4wt bamboo, 389LL, and circa 379. I fished DT3F lines for many years and find this SA WF line works better for my typical small stream casts. One of the nicest and most subtle lines I've ever used. Also a big fan of Cortland WF5F 444 peach for my 5wt bamboo and it felt good on my sage one 590 one time I used it. I was a bigger fan of the old 444 laser line in gray when it was available.

    Perhaps I should note, the rod I am trying to line here is an 8' 3" staggered ferrule Orvis Impregnated Battenkill bamboo rod. I was advised that although the rod shows a heavier line I should be looking at a 6 wt. So if anyone has any experience with 6 wt stuff please chime in.

    Thanks
