Thread: True Weight Lines

  1. #1

    Default True Weight Lines

    I need some suggestions for a true weight 5 line. I currently have a SA GPX, but it is my understanding that it is actually a half weight heavier than listed. For example, the 6 is really 6.5. I have a new 5wt that doesn't seem to like anything heavier and I need to know what lines out there are true weight lines. Do the Wulff TT run true to weight? Thanks!

    Default Re: True Weight Lines

    SA's Trout, Expert Distance, and XPS lines are all true to weight. The Trout has a taper profile fairly similar to the GPX, the Expert Distance has a super long belly and rear taper that excels at roll casting and mending, and the XPS is about the best for delicate presentations out there, IMO.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
