Rated 5 out of 5 by Rodsrus Finest Flyline Cortland's ten meter length fly line is perfect for lightweight fly rods and small diameter fly reels with limited capacity. You don't have to cut down more expensive 90' lines just to fit your reel. An excellent value for the price. I have used Cortland lines for years and this line performs well in small stream situations. July 4, 2012

Rated 3 out of 5 by BuggerDragger Cortland Ten Meter DT5 In my opinion, a great idea, but not quite optimum. I purchased the DT5 version of this line for my short 6' DB Diamondglass 5 wt rod. It's an excellent line if you're only considering the fact that it will fit on the White River Classic ultralight fly reel with room to spare...otherwise it's a fair caster, but a little more difficult to load than I would prefer. I have since purchased a Scientific Anglers Mastery Trout DT5 and another tiny reel that holds more backing...there's truly a night and day difference! My DB came alive! You get what you pay for! So, bottom line, this little line will cast...but not without some thought and effort and fly fishing should be effortless when it comes to a cast. 4 stars for execution, 3 for performance, 3.5 stars overall.

A:Due to the line weights, this line is really marginal for saltwater. Of the three line weights available, the 5 wt is the best suited.
If you're fishing for small fish close to shore on a calm day with small flies, you'll probably be okay. Any wind or large flies are going to be a problem.
Also, a rod matching these lines is going to be gutless if you tie into a medium or large fish and you run the risk of it breaking.
I would really recommend starting out with, at minimum a 7 or 8 weight line and rod for saltwater. Especially if that's all you're going to be fishing. A 9-10 wt would be better still.
Better to spend a bit more now for a more suitable equipment, than have to replace it later and end up buying twice.
