The SWT12I finally came today. Looks like the translucent mint to me so Cold intermediate. You agree?
These are old. The box is stamped (maybe by Joan herself?) 1993. Friggin vintage. Guess it's good that it's going on 70's Hardy St Aidan clone. The nail knot on the TT12F seated very well and I can tell these lines are tough so not worried about that. WAY tougher than any line I've ever had to nail knot. And I see quite a few on the interwebs mentioning they last forever so that's good. I have some Cortland lines still trucking that are just as old.
Def good enough to get me in the game. View attachment 266444
I have the same exact lines. I weld a loop on them as I run a furled leader. That's the cold intermediate alright and likely the line responsible for the majority of my musky landed. The beauty of the triangle taper is the ability to cut it back for stronger delivery and less grains. That line will work on a ten or eleven weight musky rig perfectly as is.
