Great line for the price! I was in the market for a cast-able 5wt line and I was looking at lines in the $100 range, so when I was told about Headstart I was skeptical of buying at first. Most inexpensive 5wt lines are tough to cast but after comparing diameters with the higher end brands l was sold. I've been using the Headstart for about 2 months now and I really like it, I am able to shoot 40 to 50 feet of line with minimal effort. I've even consider changing my 8wt line to Headstart. Great product from Scientific Angler. December 11, 2012
Nice Line! I am a beginner fly fisherman, I ve fished a spin and bait casting reel set ups for 50 yrs and decided recently to get involved with fly fishing as a new adventure. I purchased a Bass Pro package rod and real recently. I decided to replace the line that came with it. I ve heard that the line is the most important part of the trinity of reel, pole and line group. I am really like the Headstart line, helps me cast better, I am still learning but its a lot more fun now. September 30, 2013
Equal to anything I've used lately. The line performs very well. The load and shooting with the line gives me good distance even with a moderate wind. I"ll continue to use it for my dry's and light weight nymphs. April 26, 2013
