Default Textured Fly Lines

After the last few trips I have realized that my 4-wt and 5-wt lines are at the end of their life. That life has lasted approximately 3yrs (after regular cleanings and treatments), so I think I got my moneys worth out of them. My 4-wt is a Rio Gold and my 5-wt is an Orvis Wonderline.

My dilemma is that I am intrigued by the textured lines. I wasn't much of a fan of Sharkskin as I thought it just felt a bit too textured. However, the new SA Mastery Textured and the Orvis Hydros 3D seem to be more up my alley.

My question is has anybody out there tried these two newer lines, and can you offer a comparison to traditional fly line or Sharkskin?

Thanks!
