In hast I left this line off the other pole so I'll do it now and calculate it in.
I think the partridge is new and in the UK.

From what I've read, the Orvis Wonderline only comes in sinking versions laugh.gif

I just got back from Ann Arbor with my new Battenkill reel. Sweeeet!
I have it spooled with the Orvis Silver Label line. The price was right.
Also got a free crawfish fly for driving an hour to get to the shop and a gaurentee on free shipping for anything I'd like in the future.
Also have to say I looked at some real sweet wooden rod cases and fly boxes. Also some fine boo.
Enjoyed every bit of my 45min visit at Colton Bay.

Bought a WF5F wonderline for my resident trout fishing last summer, I love it. But then I did upgrade from a fairly cheap, used SA line.

I have a wf5f wonder-why -the -hell I bought it line which will prolly get trashed here soon. I have bought 2 of them in the past a 4 and a 5 and they both didn't hold up as claimed. Gimmee SA mastery series or nada. Just my 2cts.

They lose their slickness (even following recommended cleaning and storage) in a season and one cracked prematurely. They also tend to have quite a bit of memory and are not good for temps below 50*F. Good luck with these...maybe I just got a bad lot dunno.gif ive_been_ripped.gif wallbash.gif huh.gif

I did buy mine late in the season, for the price I hope it last me longer than one or two years. Actually thinking about it now I do remember it having alot of memory.

the advantage is some better now the other was really bad for memory. i live the superfine series on my full flex 9 ft 4wt it is a really soft casting line for dry flies. I did have some problems with is coiling up not memory coils but wrapping up i quess. I think it is my cast but orvis did replace 2 lines before i decided that . They are nice to deal with and told ma any future problem to call them the fishing guru gave me a email addy for questions so i am pretty happy now. I found to just straighten it between trips and it works well. I fish in the same spot about all day casting dries and that makes it coil up alitlle i guess but overall satisfied.

I use an Orvis Wonderline running line behing a shooting head system in the salt. Definately a quality line. My only gripe is that the diameter is a little big for a shooting/running line function.
