Just wondering if anyone has tried these. They are going for half price on ebay.

Before the XLT lines were available, the Cortland lines had what was one of the longest front tapers on any Spey line, except for the Wulff triangle tapers. I tried the Cortland DT's, Even expermented with extending the tapers. They were O.K. But once the XLT's were released I quit using the DT's. I still have a WF8/9 that has the long front taper as well. Not a bad line. But if I'm going to use a short bely line, I prefer to go really short. Like a Skagit line. Funny how you never hear much about either the Cortland or the Wulff Spey lines anymore.

I've had a lot of good use out of the DT10/11F line, and the DT8/9F is an excellent fit on my 9140-4 brownie. When extended, the DT, with its long, compound tapers, behaves not unlike an extended-belly line with a graduated taper running line. It throws beautiful loops. I agree that this is an underappreciated spey line.
