With a long head and back taper this line is an excellent all around fly line on rivers and lakes when long casts and complete line control are required. The low stretch core creates the smoothest, most durable fly lines ever made, with incredible levels of sensitivity when casting and fishing, and provides enhanced detection of takes, faster hook sets, and far greater control when playing a fish. In addition, this line is built with SlickCast, creating the slickest, most durable coating on the market—producing the least amount of friction ever measured in a fly line.
