    That really is it in a nutshell Scott. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that skagit increased two handed casting use in the US by 5X over the past decade. Nothing wrong with that in my opinion. It will always be "clunkier" in comparison to a more traditional long-bellied line. And in the proper situation it will catch just as many fish so it's all good.

    Exactly; I think that is what most folk will discover, moving on from Skagit to more traditional lines.

    Back to the future!
