Fly Line -
By: WildTrutta from Devon, England
I am most impressed by the ease of casting and retrieve with this line. It flows out well and gives a good connection on the retrieve. The sink rate is fine for waters that are not too deep - shallow lake edges and off sandbars. Excellent piece of kit.
sink rate -
This "Orvis" intermediate line is fairly good value for money but the sink rate is slower than expected. It also requires a good stretch before use at it tends to have a fair bit of memory. The sink rate is o.k. in fast water, on a spate river, but tends to stay on the surface in slacker water. I have used it on the South Esk in Scotland and found that it casts o.k. but "curls" on the surface, even after it has been stretched. The "pre-formed" loop is to large and rigid and is best replaced with a braided loop
Reach More Fish.
Improvements in the coating of the industry's best-selling line make it 7% slicker than older-generation Wonderlines and slicker than the competition. With less friction between line and rod guides, your cast will travel farther and your tippet will be better protected.
You'll get more distance from the same casting motion and have to false cast and double haul less.
Better Presentation and Mends.
A new, higher-floating tip material and micro-balloons surrounding the line's core increase floatability for easier mending and quieter pickup.
Superslick coating resists line coiling that can ruin important casts.
Improves Rod Performance.
Perfected tapers are designed to maximize the efficiency of ultra modern graphite rods like the Helios.
Casts Better Longer.
Wonderline Generation 3's coating is designed and produced exclusively by Orvis. A postproduction manufacturing process, performed at our factory in Manchester, Vermont, embeds the superslick coating deeply into every line for resistance to dirt and grime. Just an occasional soap-and-water bath will ensure that your line will last for years.
