SA Shark Skin do you like it?

Recommended Posts

I also noticed that the little diamond shapes collect and hold dirt, that's why it will grind threw guides, I return a teton reel cause after 12 years of dirty line & big trout running it cut into the reel, I didn't notice it till my line was being shaved, so I agree that it's the dirt not the plastic,but the shark skin will hold the dirt----so?

I've had several $40 lines (Cabela's Prestige plus) which I've fished HARD for 3 seasons and longer, and as long as I take care of the line it lasts as long as any. I've seen guys ruin a $70 Rio in a couple days, because they just abuse the crap out of it, then they complain.

 

A properly WHIPPED loop is the only way to go IMO. The fly line will break before the loop fails, every time if done correctly. Other than that, a Whitlock-style zap-a-gap splice is best, again the line will break before the junction every time if done correctly.

 

It ain't rocket science, as much as they want us to believe it is.
