I bought this line, because I like the idea of a clear line when fishing to spooky trout in calm conditions. I've utilized other brands and they were mediocre. This line casts really well, but it also has great feeling when fishing at a distance. Clear fly lines have a mono filament core that stretches. This is an issue when trying to hookset at 60+ feet out. There is very little stretch in this line. I was constantly casting into the backing and hooking fish at a distance of 80+ feet. I wasn't losing fish due to poor hooksets like I have on other clear intermediate lines. The sink rate was exactly as described. This is my go to intermediate line for both freshwater and inshore salt water use. I highly recommend this line to anyone who needs a high performance clear intermediate line.
