Default Re: another orvis rod question

I like a DT line personnally for 5wt rods and under. I fish an SA XPS on my 4 and 5 weight Winston WTs'. The 4wt has been through 2 seasons and I haven't even flipped it over on the spool yet (and this is with minimal cleaning), and it still casts like new. I trashed 2 orvis wonderlines each in a single season. Their new coating is supposed to be far improved though. The nice thing about the XPS is the low memory, which is a good thing if you use a conventional type reel. They handle the cold water temps well! You might also consider the RIO selective trout line as well (also comes in DT). Just my 2cts.
