I bought the short head floating line with the overhang marker and cast it for the first time today. I must say it is an absolutely superb line, is a joy to cast and the overhang marker is a good guide and really helped. I bought the line slick too which is great and easy to apply. Decent amount too 👍. After casting the Sunray line today I would have to say I am converted and will look at Sunray lines for all my other spools when I next need my lines replaced. The taper on the line is superb. Lies straight when casting and I found no memory in the line which is unusual for a brand new line. Very pleased 👍. Another guy at the fishery had the red proline which also looks a great line, very thin and seemed to cast very well. When I spoke to him about it he could not have praised the line more. For anyone considering replacing or adding to their fly line collection, I would seriously consider one of these lines or any of the Sunray lines, they are immense 👍🎣

Very nice an long casting line, even in very windy weather.
Hi Tom,i have receiced my rod this Morning,beautiful and with microthin JL 4 ,it's perfect,;thanks Tom
Wow Absolutely unreal line.. naught this and the competition sink tip.. both are class.. just about doubled my casting distance I would say.. I know where I'll be getting my lines from now on...
Really good stuff
Nice line and everything was perfect.
This line casts like a dream and Is a real joy to use 👍👍👍. Can’t wait to take it abroad 👌
Very happy with line and service from sunray 🎣🎣🎣
Firstly out of the packaging the line is lovely and subtle in colour feels silky smooth , in practice well the sink rate is spot on front sinks faster than the back end keeping you at the depth you want , rather than dragging the bottom , but if you want to fish hard on the bottom , as I did last day of the year with a booby whilst chatting to another angler the bite transmission from the take was spot on , felt the fly get pulled struck and played a lovely rainbow to the bank , the line does exactly what I want really happy with all the Sunray lines I now own , the over hang marker also for me acts as a retrieve pause point so you hang your flies and different points on the line with this visual marker not whats its for but hey why not us it .
Definitely worth investing in these lines are great .
The line in the photo is the comp floater 2020 as I was still fishing only used for scale .
decent amount too thanks.
thanks very much
Got the lines can't wait to try😄😄😄😄
Great line only a little stiff wish it was more supple but I love it..
A very good nymphing line, zero stretch, dull colour, braided loops IE no tippet cutting through the coating.
I have been an avid user of the snowbee thistle down 2 line which I think is a very good line for nymphing and dry fly fishing,
but I think they fu@k#d up with the coating on the welded loops, although with this line you can not cast a dry fly as some people say you can,
but for Czech or euro nymphing which ever you wana call it I believe it is second to none, I have abused this line every other day like a boss for the best part of a month with no problems, even with
strong wind's putting a bow in the line I was still able to feel nymphs hitting bottom and the takes of small grayling as with the snowbee line I was not.
the line's very thin but with a rough sort of texture ( with freezing sausage fingers that's a plus ) while fishing for grayling the first fish I ever caught on the line
was the brown in the picture Oos but what a beast 20 inch if not a bit more using no indicator and only a foot of tippet from the line to a tippet ring with a dropper on
and another foot and half to the point fly, which I think is a bit extraordinary as with most lines if they were a couple of feet under the water I have no doubt they would spook most fish,
the line being sort of a matt grey colour I think it makes it hard for the fish to see when under the water, that being said it also makes it hard to see against the backdrop of water,
so using an indicator would make life easier but its not a necessity as you can literally feel everything through the line while fishing blind so to speak.
the snowbee lines off the reel this gets a thumbs up from me, if your a nymphing freak like me try this line you wont be disappointed.
Less effort,less casting,more fishing.
Great line to fish with casts great and lies straight best line I've ever uesd
I feel that it would be unfair to all to review at this time because I have not used the line yet, all I can say is that it felt very nice as I put it on the reel
Weighs exactly as specified. Turns over nicely. Hi-vis orange coating makes it a must for fly casting photography. Joy to cast it. Love it !!

Great for delicate close range presentation, very little disturbance on landing, I couple it with a fairly long leaders well and this further reduces the line signature on delivery. Borrowed the long leader bit from Dave Southhall, saw him use it to great effect.
6# line on my 5# rod delicate presentation every time shoots like a rocket already recommend to friends .
Bought this line because of the face book ad ,casting made easy with the markers on it , I was not disappointed it works real well and casts as straight as a dye
