Thread: Sage VPT fly line

  1. #1

    Default Sage VPT fly line

    Does anyone have any experience with the Sage (correction: Scientific Anglers) VPT (versatile presentation taper) fly line? It looks like it has a profile similar to the old Triangle taper line. That means it ought to roll cast like a dream, but it is not clear to me how it should be more versatile, being able to handle small dries, nymphs, streamers, etc.

    Is this still more line hype or is there something to this design?

    I thought Rio was the ones making the Sage lines? I could be wrong but I thought thats what I was told. ANYWAY.... I have used Sage's Bass line and its casts great on those rods.

    I also thought that line looked like the TT lines.

    I know some folks swear by them, but I can't help but think that crazy long front taper would interfere with turnover power.

    The Trout Stalker line looks more intriguing to me, a textured version of the old Distance/XXD line. Mastery Textured Series Trout Stalker

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

    I bought one to try, and I must say that I am impressed. The long front taper really turns the line over nicely, and it does roll cast like a dream.

    Still seeking opinions on this line from anybody that has fished it.
