Fly Lines

I'm looking for help on new sinking lines 250gr. and 350.I presently have both sizes in Rio and have had no luck with them as far as tangling.I've done what the company has suggested but they continue to be a headache.I hope the factory rep. is at the Marlborough Show because he can have them.

I have both lines they never give me trouble....
The surf line is my 95% starter unless the tides running fast, then I need......
fast sink!! , casts really well and sinks fast !! cant do better than that!
[beware how you put lines on the reel to avoid twisting .
I put a pencil /pen/chopstick through an old cereal box /shoe box with the
new line in the box and the rest is easy. If you want you can also
put the reel onto the seat [easy with 4 piece] and have a better grip
and c an put a bit of tension and guiding in the line.
Most shops will set your reel up as well ]

I have the Rio Striper DC 350gr line and I agree with you, it has tangling issues.
I followed the stretching directions from the manuf just one time. I mean I gave this line a real good stretch.
I tied the line to a fence at a football field and walked off the whole line.
I kept tension on it for at least 5 min. Reeled it in, went home and did the manuf thing. The line was like butter, never another problem.

If you can afford to p/u another by all means; but if you want to take another shot, there is my recipe.


Would I buy another Rio line....Nah!
