Not Impressed -
I've fished this line for over a month now and I'm not impressed. The tip doesn't float very well and it has a sticky feel to it. I clean and dress it regularly but that only works for a little while.

I put this on my TFO 5 wt with an encounter reel and I feel like I purchased a new rod. This line is super slick, casts extremely well. I am very impressed with the new Orvis Hydros line. Superior to previous generations.

Best float line available for casting distance, durability and ease.
slickest line ever -
By: Bullhead from Islesboro, ME
Orvis cleaned and lubed my old Hardy Lightweight.....it 's like having a new 50 year old reel. Love it. Installing backing and a new Hydros line were the perfect complement. Thanks for still being a fishing tackle source. Been shopping with Orvis for forty years and I hope will for another 40.
great "the one" line -
Longish front taper, longer belly, longish rear taper. The line is a mend line, distance line in one with out a short stub of a front taper. It still remains light at the 30ft mark allowing a mid flex rod a faster lighter feeling in tight spooky situations. but with a tip flex rod will find hard to reach fish with distance.
Great line -

A very slick line that is great for roll casts or distance casting. The line floats well for perfect mending and spot on drifts. A great value for any angler. Buy it!
