    or when its super still, less water disturbance than floating line.

    Are you going get a 1 weight heavier line for better casting/load? Like aa WF7I outbound short ?

    Well, I already picked up the 6 wt. Outbound Short, but it is spec'd at 235 grains, which is already a lot heavier than a standard 6 wt. line. So I'm hoping it's well matched to the fast action Echo Carbon rod. We'll see :)

    I just picked up the SA GPX Hover 5wt for my 5wt Echo Carbon. The GPX series are like the RIO Outbound. About a half line overweight for their line weight. I was debating the Outbound short, but it's not available in 5wt except the Lake version which wasn't in stock. I'd previously tried the 6wt Outbound on my rod, but it was too much. Got last year's Konic 2 at 30% off with it so I'm good to go.

    I'm thinking the Hover/Intermediate lines might be best when targeting rezzies. I find them going after Clousers more which makes it subsurface by definition.

    A floater is my go to for SRCs. It's way to much fun to watch attempted takes even if you don't hook up.
