Anyone tell me how this line is compared to an Outbound Short. Does it cast any better? Thank you.
I see on the Airflo website that the Sniper line is for cold saltwater...do you have any issues with its performance on the warmer water Esox haunts here in the PNW?For really big flies, I prefer the OBS when comparing just those two. I've had longevity issues with both. I really prefer Airflo Sniper to OBS though, but that's just personal preference to the feel of the line, they essentially do the same thing, turn over absurdly large flies.
That's what I was hoping to hear! I kind of imagined them being in "intermediate" water, but I have no clue what I'm talking about. hahaIn all of my single year of doing this, I've mostly used an intermediate (I have a 375gr OBS and I like ok & a 425gr Sniper that I really like, but it's a tad heavy for my rod). I can fish subsurface and poppers with the intermediate. I've also used a Teeny T-400 a time or two but the areas I've been fishing just aren't deep enough to make it worthwhile. I've never used a floater.
You got it. That and a floater and you're styling. I only use the fast sink early in the season searching suspended fish off drops.That's what I was hoping to hear! I kind of imagined them being in "intermediate" water, but I have no clue what I'm talking about. haha
Yes the sniper is fantastic. A ten will help you out allot and keep casting chickens with cats attached pleasurable.I would like to persue bass/ Muskie this year and have tied some big stuff and tried casting with an 8wt, SA mastery series line, didn't work well. I've always used that line for steelhead and cast just fine.Would the Sniper line be a good choice for an 8wt, or do I have to step up to a 10wt setup?
