Looking for a lightly used 7wt redfish line. I'm sure someone has one that they would like to part with from a recent trip

Rio Power Fly WF 7 F line. Used one trip. In great condition. Factory loops on both ends. Respooled in original
box. $40 shipped in USA. Thanks
Not familiar with that line but looking up the specs Rio decribes it as a cold water line. This willbe used in Florida trip with warm water temps. Any feedback on your side for temperture preformance?

The Rio bonefish line has a really long head length (49.5 feet) compared to 35 feet (I think) for the redfish line. The bonefish line is very difficult to cast at close shots you get for redfish. You will get nothing but frustrated. Many of my redfish shots in winter Louisiana are 20-30 feet, with very few farther than 50 feet. Of course this is 100% sight fishing. Rio now has summer and winter redfish lines but I have not looked at the differences. Most modern fly rods can easily be up-lined by at least one weight, even with a line like the redfish or power fly lines.
Thanks for the advice Its the QS (quick shooter) version which is only a 35ft head. My understanding is there is not much difference in the lines other than core being tropical on the bonefish vs redfish. Summer vs winter redfish is sort of the same thing according to water temps
