Scientific Anglers® Mastery Series Saltwater Fly Line - Redfish
havent had any issues after 15 days on water, seems tough enough to handle the odd snag on oyster shells but still supple , this my first SA line. gonna try it for freshwater lakes up in maine next, should be fun to cast from a bass boat as it is easy to to shoot make quick casts with. i will give 5 stars if it stands up to a year of heavy fishing

Bones, Bones, Bones
I'm just back from Christmas Island for a week's flyfishing for Bonefish. I used SA Redfish Tropicore lines in #8 and #9 weights exclusively for the week. I also had SA Bonefish #8s and SA Striper Bass #9, both Tropicore, lines with me. I used two #8 weight rods a 7'11' Sage and a 9' ProAngler Saltwater, Aussie brand similar to a Nativerun.
When the wind was up over 25 knots I used the #9 weight line. The #8 weight line was used when the wind was at the 15 to 25 knot strength. These lines are a half weight heavy with a short head length, 30ft, so they load the rod easily especially when there is only a stort amout of lines off the tip of the rod.
I did not have any trouble with these lines in the hard casting conditions handed out at Christmas Island and will definitely use SA Redfish Tropicore there on my next trip, unless something better comes along.
These lines also perform very well in tropical Australia where water temps can be 80 F in the winter and mid 80s in the summer when the air temps are 95+.
Total Bones for the week 84.
Yes I am very happy with the performance of these lines.

Not sure about this line
Ive only cast this a few times, 9wt, floating, temp above 90F. Seems like it does not cast as well as I expected its limp enough but retains kinks even after stretching I find it almost impossible to straighten out and I am considering returning it for an exchange if allowed to.

Best Fly Line On The Market
Weather you are fishing for Reds or Trout this is the line for you. I have tried others and this is by far the best I have used. It casts very well and I have not had any problems with this line.
