    Got this to replace line that came on an encounter outfit. Immediately noticed how much easier it was to load the rod and shoot line. Love it so far

    I bought this line as a replacement for my 10 years old used Superfine Wonderline fly line. The new Hydros Superfine line has a different taper and does not load in close as nicely as the older taper. ORVIS must have changed that. The Clearwater WF line has a slightly heavier taper and loads rods well already at small distances. Originally it was developed for beginner casters to help them better feel the rod load. The line surface is super slick and floats well. A good fly line.

    Good fly line. I have this line on a Clearwater reel. No complaints with it. If you want a quality line & don't want to spend a lot of money, this is it. It casts well & feels good in the hand. Very pleased with this line so far.

    Excellent line - 5/27/2014

    When I first used this line I was instantly impressed with the ease that it slides through the guides. This line creates minimal friction against all contact surfaces resulting in a greatly improved cast distance. The welded loop in the end makes attaching a leader a breeze and the WF makes for an easy and accurate cast. You really couldn't ask for any more in such a reasonably priced line.

    Clearwater Line Coating Cracks - 5/10/2014
    By: from Cincinnati, OH

    I bought a 8 wt clearwater outfit in December and practiced doublehauling before fishing. Unfortunately, the coating cracked need the loop. The store told be to coat it with rubber glue which I did to repair it. While the line casts well, I would never recommend this line because it cracked and I doubt if it will last long.
