Case 1 Tibor Riptide:
- With WC 6.7.8, the Riptide holds 200 yards of 30 lb. dacron backing.
- With a Rio Skagit 450 Spey line, 30 lb dacron backing capacity was reduced to 150 yards. Unfortunately this April a flaming hot Situk steelhead ran downstream and was still accelerating at the 150 yard mark.
Skagit lines take a bunch of space, and their performance it worth it.
