Just coming off a week's fishing in Gaspe with my wife. I spooled up a WF8F Sharkskin in the "Ultimate Trout Taper", thinking I'd give it a try while my wife used a WF7F Sage Performance taper. Well, I had to fish the 7wt all week since I couldn't pry the 8-wt Sharkskin away from my wife. She was always a decent caster, but did much better than before with the Sharkskin. I got to try it a few times when we were doing a wet/dry change-up or something, and found it a great shooter and floater. It also mends very easily too.The sound does take some getting used to, but has been tested and found to be LESS wearing on the rod guides.
