Default Re: Rio SLick Shooter Thoughts?

I like the 35 lb stuff. However,every line has its trade offs. I tie a larger perfect loop knot in that stuff with a drop of uv glue on it to to help w not hanging up. I've never had a problem. I like the Slick shooter for my shakgit, more distance. The head rio running line for my skandi. Scandi being used in areas were a more delicate touch is used. For some serious mending water I use Rio's steel head taper 2 sizes bigger. With a 7 I use a 9wt. You can put scandi leader on that if desired. It doesn't cast as well but mending is ,a lot of time, more important than cast abilities. Its easier w dries also. Oh! I main use a 7wt 11.4 switch.

after now having a chance to cast my rig I can see where it would be a neat to try this stuff, but Im glad I got the powerflex, its way better for the fingers.
