Looking For a CND 7/8 Line;

If you have one or can direct me to where I may be able to get both I would appreciate. This would be for my 15' Winston 7/8. I use a delta Long now but would like to change that to the CND line.

Thanks,

Ard

When I find one of these it will replace an Airflo Delta Long 66' size 8/9 if anyone needs one of this line mine is good as new.

Where are those CND lines.................


Correction; Delta Long 9/10 is what I have, I'll list it correctly in the classifieds. Sorry for the misquote

I wish I could help you Ard. These GPS lines are not so available these days. Atop of that - the 7/8 is like the holly grail of speylines. Hold out as long as you can because they are out there somewhere. If you are willing to compromise though - take a gander at the Rio (who made the GPS for CND) PowerSpey: Only slightly shorter, slightly lighter, with similar long back taper and casting character. Clip the 7/8 and heavier weights at 20 feet for a set of 15'CD tips to match and you will have something close to the CND.

8/9

I have a Grandspey 8/9 that I bought for my Loomis IMX 8/9. Not the line I was hoping for. I would consider a trade for the Delta Long. Let me know.

I'm afraid the Grand Spey 8/9 will be too much line for the rod in question as is the Delta. The rod is a Winston 15' Derek Brown rated 7/8. Yeah I know it's a tad heavy but I like big robust rods.......... Anyway, the way I cast and fish I'm almost always sweeping and casting the entire head. The 8/9 lines work but I have to make it work, I have a friend who has the same rod and uses the CND 7/8 and I trust his advice on this line.

A 7/8 GrandSpey and my 7/8 DBF where one of my first and finest set-ups early on. Still have to rod and occasionally I'm casting FF70 7/8 on it...

You know I don't speak Spey and I spend way too much time remote, so help me out buddy, what is a FF70. How long the belly and are they available if I want to try one.

Thanks

No problem, Ard. Look into the Winter Authority lines as they are the same line as the FF but looped @ 15 to allow for swapping to sink tips.

CND lines...

Ard,

Are you looking for a CND GPS line??
Call Lee Davidson at Snake River Outfitters and see what he has left.
He may just be down to the Double Tapers-which are great lines too.
Here's the phone#-208-538-7425; he's in Idaho...
That DBF will really like a Carron Jetstream or a Hardy Mach 2 plus also.
The Nextcast lines are cool but all are configured as shooting heads now.
You might want to start watching the classifieds for any/all of these lines.
Good luck,

Tom

long belly

If you do decide to sell the 8/9 Delta long, I'd like to be the first in line. I'm leaving in a few minutes for my trailer on the Grande Ronde until Saturday, but I'll try to check emails tomorrow. PM coming in. Thanks in advance.

I meant a Nextcast Fall Favorite 70' head 7/8WF. The Nextcast Winter Authority is the same line except looped at 15 feet for 15 foot tips.They are heavy by weight class compared to the Delta Long so the 6/7 600 grains - 60 footer may work for you if not the 7/8 660.

Right, of course, and I have one of the old full lines. But the heads are nice also. Spendy for only a head though...

SRO may be the place to check - I know he had a GPS 7/8/9 DT listed.
Good luck in the search. I hope you find the CND.

Ard,

The Nextcast are great lines but run heavy. The 7/8 CND GPS weighs 594 grains and is 65'. The 7/8 Nextcast FF is 62' and 660 grains. The 6/7 is only 600 grains or near the same as the CND but is only 59'.
