C'mon, someone who's a good caster can use it. 27 feet was the standard length. Now they're referred to as "long". Still cast beautifully and less stripping.

I have this exact line on my 7wt redington dually 13ft ( or else I'd buy yours). To me it casts a lot like a scandi without the taper, so it throws tips really well. T11 and an intruder are no problem! It also mends really well. I love this line for those big wide runs because at 28 ft vs the 20 ft of my skagit short, there is a lot less line to strip in inbetween casts, lets me cover the run a lot quicker. Good luck selling the line, its a great line that I think people just havent heard enough about.

Ok, I'm in!

Sure, I'll take it. I learned to cast on the old "beer can" Rio Skagit line and actually prefer the little extra length. I'll PM you.

Regards,

Chris

PM recieved. Line is yours, Chris. I think you'll like the line for the reasons Rmac stated.
