Byron, that new nymph line works like a dream! I haven't tried to fish dry flies with it yet, but I don't think that will be a problem. It floats really high and mends well, roll casts are what is most impressive with this line. Roll cast of 30 feet layed out perfectly, even with a double nymph rig. It slaps the water kind of hard like you said it might. Fishing on slow water will require adjusting you delivery stroke a little to ensure a softer laydown. Another satisfied customer. Thanks.
