You can probably guess from my previous post, I picked up a Gaelforce line. It's an integrated Scandi and I got to try it out today for the first time.  Wow, I am totally blown away. I don't know s*#@ from putty compared to most people about spey rods, lines, casting etc. but I am very pleased with this line. It really cast like a dream. Awesome!

Thanks, Leo.

You know as much as is needed to know.  That's what it's about.  [thumb]

I guess I do know as much as I need to. I should probably say what I liked about the line. These are a tri colored line so you can judge your holding point. It was bang on for my rod. The loops were very nice and my single spey seemed better, a cast that I have struggled with. I really like an integrated line for my type of fishing. I ruined a Beulah integrated trying to weld in a color change at the holding point. Glad to have the Gaelforce.

Leo you will find that the optimum spot for the colour change at the rod tip, will be with the change 1- 3 inches inside the rod tip [wink] adjust the colour change in hand accordingly [smile]

Was just on Poppy's store front looking at lines.  Wow, Gaelforce lines are breeding like rabbits!  Lot's of new choices.

Leo,

Welcome to the club. The ride just gets better and better. I bought a Gaelforce 3D 8/9 (float/hover/intermediate) this year and it was just perfect on my Meiser 15' 7/8/9 Highlander Classic.

Dave,

The new Gaelforce lines are coming from good background roots and the best research available.

Thanks Doug, I have a couple of their lines, and am curious about some of the new ones.  Getting that time of year!  Dave

Are you using polyleaders on their shooting heads?  I saw Gaelforce makes those and tips in sink, but not floating.  Just curious how you are rigging it up?

Dave,

I am sure poly leaders would work just fine. My leaders have become very simple. I use 10' of 15# Maxima Chameleon for a butt and 5' of 12# Maxima Clear Flourocarbon for a tippet. It works and I would not try to fix something that is not broken.
