    Default Bonefish line suggestion for xi2

    Hi folks...lurker turned poster here. Great site, tons of good info...used search but it gave me way too much to think about!

    Anyway, after a 20 year hiatus from SW fly fishing...still doing the trout thing...I decided to go to the Bahamas with some new friends. I picked up a well priced Xi2 and am trying to find a good line or two. I'm a pretty decent caster and used to fast action rods. I may pick up a 9wt Colton closeout as a back up or alternate as well.

    I would appreciate any help you guys might be willing to offer...a lot has changed since I was tying Charlies!

    Thanks, Kevin

    Sorry for offending the forum gods...realized that there was a dedicated line forum...maybe the moderator will move it. Can I move it myself?

    SA Mastery Bonefish - Great line. Been using this one for years
    SA Sharkskin Saltwater - Great casting line. Make sure to tape up your fingers.
    Rio Bonefish - This line shoots well. It doesn't limp out like the previous generation.
    Airflo Tropical Bonefish - It shoots well.


    Edit: I generally upline my saltwater rods by one to slow them down a touch. It also helps me load the rod just in case a fish gets within 30 feet of me.

    Thanks MP, I was looking at the SA mastery but was a little discouraged by the lack of end loops. I generally like them on both ends because I don't have a lot of spare spools!

    I'll take your suggestion and start with a line up and try it out. I imagine it will also help out a bit in the wind.
