    golf- i hear ya on line control for what youre doing. for how i usually fish, i dont tend to manipulate the head after the initial mend (if needed), but i can see why you prefer the coated runners.

    so not to change the subject, but on the topic of replacing an integrated runner with mono, my standard rear taper that i leave on (after finding the fattest part of the line and measuring back) is about 18 inches. it really is a personal preference but its just what ive gotten used to and like the results of what ive found. i realize that i lose some of the grains in the rear taper and that i'll have to tolerate the clicking of the connection through the guides when in a tight spot on the water, but to me, its worth the trade off for the mono runner (on certain lines).

    On mark B's flyfishusa on Sunday (of all things to order up a shoot line) and in his product description he commented that Amnesia (sp?) is no longer available. Anyone actually seen the product either 'on-line' or in a 'sticks and bricks' shop?

    I've heard it's been out of production for years....but it seems to be readily available on ebay, shops or even sportsman's
