I have to agree Larry. But then again I use nothing but scientific anglers or Cortland lines! something about over 50 years experience making lines makes me happy when buying a line. Airflow is right across the bridge from me and I have thought about going over and casting some of there lines. Splitting down the middle? never seen it happen so will save the gas and stick with the brands I grew up on. I have had good longtime use with teeny lines also.
