Airflo's 7000T Salmon Steelhead Speycaster line. yeah, that old thing:rolleyes: :rolleyes: Line Size 8/9.

This is the line Skilly was inquiring about some time ago on another thread in this forum. i tried it yesterday afternoon on my sage 9140 green blank. The performance was amazing. it is hands down the best line I've cast on that rod. The 9140 could handle nearly the entire head, with 12' of it in the eyes, and could easily double and circle spey, plus snake roll the entire head, plus shoot 20' of running line. am sure it would have pulled more had I given it the extra loops of line. but with a 14' leader for dry line summer work, that's 100' plus of fishin', more than i'll ever need on the deschutes, ' Rhonde and Salmon Rivers that I call home!! Having never cast a mid/longer belly line on that rod, and to get that kind of performance was icing on the cake. I still can't believe the pretty loops and straight lines shooting out there!!! And dammit all if that freakin' line isn't discontinued!!! :whoa: :(

So my quest!! To locate another one of those lines, 'cause there's no way in hell i'm getting it out of Skilly's hands!! :chuckle:

Does any one outhere have one of these lines (again, in the 8/9 line designation) out there that I can buy off them??? Am really hoping some fly shop some where has one in the bargain bin that they've yet to get rid of, but know the odds of that are slim and none, and slim just left town. so I'm hoping for a slightly used line, or unused line, someone has that they'd be willing to part with. not desperate, but will pay a fair price for it!! hoping someone can help me out!!!!:whoa: :eyecrazy: :)

Thanks!!!!

9/10

And if anyone has an old 9/10 laying around used or new I would like to buy, bum, borrow it. I have a feeling that my Specialist might just love it.

If I can find enough of these old discontinued no good lines I can rent them out to Feiger:D :devil: You should have seen the grin he had when he tried it.
