    Default Floating line... WF or DT

    What your preference in a floating line?

    1. Weight forward -Rocket Taper
    2. Double Taper all the way
    3. Depends
    4. Double taper... what's that? never tried one
    5. Old skool....level line for me
    6. Shooting head/ muliti head system

    I use wf lines on everything bigger than 3wt and use dt on my smaller rods. I don't cast them as far (to use the advantages of the wf) so I get 2 line usages for the price of 1.

    Other than using a dt line twice, I see no advantage to them over the wf.

    WF for all too.
    Loads the rod better at shorter distances.

    WF on all of my lines. I was going to get a DT for my 2wt however the belly is so long on the wf that I have, it works just like a DT would on small streams but I can still lay out plenty of line in bigger waters like the Farmington.

    WF on everything. The last double taper line I had I gave away to someone on the forum.
