Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 ten meter line This line is perfect for my style of creek fishing - I use a lot of roll casts under 30 feet. This line stretches out with very little memory and floats well. My only complaint with my 4 wt DT line is that the tip wanted to sink. I added knot sense and that appears to have solved the problem. Perhaps the tip wicked water. I also have this line in 3 and 5 weights for close in work. April 29, 2008

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.
