Best integrated lines?

Anyone have suggestions for the easiest casting integrated lines out there on the market? (For use with sink tips) thanks!

Wulff Ambush WF because it has heavy rear and is tapered its length so Spey efficiency comes good and line loops smooth.

Rio AFS Outbound has also heavy rear and is easy and smooth casting WF line but for the tip use you need to cut and loop it but that is easy and takes only fiveteen minutes. AFS OB are not made anymore but I have seen them on ebay.

Guideline Xchange Tri-Tip WF looks good but heaviest is only 370gr and I think it is very expensive.

Sorry to hijack Clutchhead, but where does your quote come from? I suspected andchecked A River Runs Through it, and neither son is Neil.

Just to come back on track for the thread, I found that heads were far easier to manipulate to conditions than integrated; much cheaper too!

As a newbie, I found the Switch Chucker to be easy to cast and it is robust enough to turn over sink tips.

Snowbee lines are the best I've cast for integrated lines

The running line is so nice in your fingers

I can’t remember for sure if “Neil” is his name, but I do know that that line was addressed by one of the brothers to the other other brother’s girlfriend’s idiot douchebag worm-fishing brother, so....no conflict.

What? Don’t look at me. I’m not the one who knows the names of the brothers from “A river runs through it”. Geez, that would just be embarrassing!

Clutch,

How long a belly do you want? On what rod will it be used? What kind of tips to you want to throw? How big of flies to you typically use? Need a little more info.

I see you're a shvingger too!

integrated line

I really like the Rio Short Head Spey line. Mainly use it for floating work and small to medium flies but it will cast all levels of Polyleaders or versaleaders.

I’ll be sending t-8 to t-11 at most. Intruders for the most part. From what I’m gathering long belly’s might not be good for me. Thanks for responding!

Hahaha yes it was Neil! Love that can of worms also. That would be a collectible for sure!

What line class rod? Heavier lines within same series boss tips better. Yes, common knowledge.. can influence line choices though. Some may have what it takes in mid-upper weights with underlings lacking same capacity.

Don't know Erie Tribs but if your familiar with Pere Marquette and similar size (West MI) Wulff Ambush SHINES there.. I'm using Airflo's CC 200 10gr per foot on 6wts and up.
