WTB: SA Sharkskin WF-7-F or WF-6-F

I am looking for a SA Sharkskin line, trout taper.

Interested in either 7 weight or 6 weight lines.

Anyone have anything in the cupboard that is of no use to them?

I am in New Zealand so would need the line shipped, and would prefer to pay by Paypal.

Something to consider:

I talked to my local fly pro shop here when I was thinking of getting one of these lines, and this is what I found out.

First, they are expensive as hell!!!

Because of the rough texture they have, the fly lines are loud when they are cast, making noise when rubbing against your guides.

They can also tear up your fingers and finger joints if you are not careful. This stuff will saw through you skin. They don't call it shark skin for nothing.

I decided to stick with standard type lines.

Just passing on some info to think about.
Good luck.
