Wrap those fingers
Rating: 4 of 5 [4 of 5]
Reviewed by: DJ in VA on 02/13/2010
Experience Level: Amatuer - Ownership: 1+ Years
Pros: Like the line when its not raining. Turns over big flies well and is smooth. Agree it is a little wimpy and limp when its warm outside. But that has not been a real problem.
Cons: Well, obviously it's an expensive line. I was an early adopter and there are a few other real pricey lines now, but generally I think you get what you pay for. New technology. My biggest negative is the texture, which is what makes this line unique. It makes kind of a zinging noise through the guides, particularly when you are bearing down on a nice fish. I spent a week in Alaska in Sept. 08 and it rained hard every day. After the first day, the two fingers on my right hand that hold the line when I strip were raw and bleeding. So if you are going to use this line in the rain, I'd recommend some kind of wrap on your stripping fingers.
Other Thoughts: RiverBum service is the gold standard.

Experience Level: Amatuer - Ownership: 4 - 12 Months
Pros: I was very skeptical of paying so much for any fly line at all. I usually go through 2 5 wt lines a year. I have fished this one hard and heavy and have noticed several amazing qualities right off the bat; I don't have to clean this line not even 1/2 as much as I have other lines in the past.2nd-this line is a shooter! I have it on a 5wt. Winston and it makes a great combination.I have been fly fishing for 25 years or more and seldom is the wheel re-invented. This is one product that shines above the rest. I am looking forward to up-grading my other lines for steelhead/salmon and also a 3wt.
Cons: The only draw-back I can foresee is how the aggressive coating on the line will be on my ferrules-in that it could possibly wear through them in time.
Sharkskin Magnum
Rating: 4 of 5 [4 of 5]
Reviewed by: Brian on 01/13/2009
Experience Level: Amatuer - Ownership: 4 - 12 Months
Pros: Line casts well, and shoots very nicely. It seems to turn big, wind resistant flies, over as well as other "bass" taper lines. Very low memory.
Cons: Price. While a it has low memory, I feel it may be a bit too limp. It seems a bit too "soft".
Other Thoughts: I'm hoping to give this new line a better workout this season. Most of my experience with it has been during windy days. Not the best conditions to give the line a fair shake.
