    I'm sold on this line and would replace any of my trout lines with it. Super smooth line and extra good casting. I love the weight of it and how it shoots line out. I weighted up to a 7wt line for my 6wt rod for nymphing but I shoot out dry flies on it decently also.

    fun, smooth, powerful

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    As always, before making this purchase I did my fair share of research. Talked to friends, read reviews, and once I had my mind set, pulled the trigger. I love this line, have it on two different reels, a 5wt and 6wt. Sharkskin essential creates less friction through rod guides, enabling the user to cast further. One misconception, just because you can cast further doesn't mean you should be casting further. Catching fish doesn't require hero casting. I know throwing lots of line is quite fun, but with more line comes a decrease in accuracy and hook sets...just something to keep in mind. The line also makes more noise through rod guides than traditional line, but this wasn't a bother to me.

    Best Line / Rough w/ Streamers

    I LOVE the sharkskin line. It is by far the best line ive ever used. The line shoots so well, it easily adds multiple feet to every cast. There is little to no friction with the guides and the line floats like a dream. The ONE negative is that the abrasive/textured finish to the line rubs your fingers raw while stripping streamers all day! Its cool, this guy till got a mouth full of feather.
