this line was recommended by my Orvis fly shop to use with my fast action rod.The line casts very well, However the tip does not float. Treating the tip with the recommended floatant did not remedy this problem. i will need to puchase another fly line. I do not recommend this line.

Has helped me with distance and accuracy as I learn to cast well. Wind is not as big a problem for me anymore.
Great Value and Performance -

The slick surface and "Power Taper" allow longer casts with precise placement requiring less power from the rod. Great choice of line for beginner to seasoned fishers. You will not be disappointed.
Much better than the competitors! -

Had previously been using a 4 Weight DT from a competitor for small stream trout. I bought the hydros in 5 weight to overline my 4 weight rod for bass on hot summer days. What a difference in the hydros! Incredibly smooth action which loads very easily and great for punching out big flies and poppers. Money well spent.
Power Taper on a fast rod -

I was using a regular line on a competitor's rod and was ready to sell the entire package. This was a very fast rod and I was have a tough time feeling it load. I put on the Hydros Power Taper and it's like buying a whole new rod! I can't recommend this line enough for fast action rods!
Great line -

Very slick easy casting line. Shoots through the guides. I ordered this line spooled on to an Access reel in 6wt and it really casts easily.
This is my go to line. -

You can cast heavy flies a mile with this line. There is also no doubt when this line loads the rod. This is my number one bass line.
Super Taper -

Have used this power Taper all season with a Helois rod. This combination is unbeatable. Made this purchase as a back-up.
Helios Powertaper -

I paired this line to compliment my Helios 905 Tip flex. What I didn't realize is that I basically ended up purchasing a new rod! This line is phenomonal with the powerful tip flex Helios, it loads, shoots, and casts absolutely beautiful. The accuracy imparted in my casting by the marriage of the rod and line is really something else. Personally they should rename this model of the Hydros line the Helios Line. This line has become the new standard on my Helios rods!
Perfect weight -
What an excelent line, after trying other 'named' lines this line turned out to be the perfect weight and length for my rod. The new coating made it fly through the rod rings. Excellent at short or long distance. A++++
