Don't take everything as Gospel. 333's have been around a long time, they perform well and will continue to suffice. Some people love 444's, some hate them. There was a grand scream and holler when the 555 series had some aggravating memory problems, which I hope are cleared up before this next year.
Don't pass up an Airflo line either. Lots of people like Rick Teeny's stuff. Scientific Anglers makes Orvis (last I knew.) Temple Fork is coming out with their own series of lines soon. All line manufacturers swear theirs is the best but, you gotta take it all with a grain of salt and try some specific to the type of fishing you do.
