    I have fished the Outbound for several years, now and it's my favorite line for salt, period. I can roll cast it to the surface and then pick it up and lay it back out without false casting. More time on the water means more time fishing hence more fish. It's also heavy enough that I can scrape bottom with my fly if I want to get down.

    Peter, It would not be terribly difficult to splice a heavier (say 200-250g) head to some running line. If you have the 200g head (or a section of heavier line that you can cut to 200gr.) all you would need to buy is applicable running line. I think most running lines cost between 20.00 and 40.00. And the tool to splice the line might be 5.00-10.00

    You dont need special glues or epoxy's to splice the line either, just run aqua seal, you should have some laying around anyway.

    Just my .02

    Thats right, thanks for the advice, I think I'm going to do that.. Or just settle with a 200g streamer express for the rest of the season.
