The best line 6 wt line i have ever used.
Bought my first Proline a month ago. 7# one of the few lines I have found that can load my rod correctly I use 10ft, IM 12 tip flex fast action and shoots extremely well with combination. Its better than a lot of lines which cost more. I delayed posting this in case it was just a flash in the pan but I received my second one on Tuesday after pestering Sunray as they had run out stock and the 5# shoots and handles just the same. The only trouble is I now have to get a 10ft IM12 5# as my 5 is only a 9ft. More money that my wife will never see !
I ordered a floating line for my 10 foot 3 weight rod. I was pretty sceptical but thought it worth a punt at the price. I wasn’t expecting much. The line was neatly packaged with small loops at each end. On Sunday 5th July I went up to one of the Dunnet Head Lochs Caithness. I am a reasonably competent caster but certainly nothing special. When the white area was at the rod tip I launched my cast and too my great surprise the whole length of the line in my hand extended in a nice straight line and fell softly on to the surface of the water. I was flabbergasted. I am just ordering a 5 weight line for another rod
Hands down the best casting line I've ever bought
This stuff is magic. Makes the line supple and zoom through the rod rings.
Well I got my line super fast delivery got it all set up could not wait to get to my local lake
Wow Wow Wow that’s all I can say load it right and boom it flies never owned a line like it even makes me look a good distance caster
Ordering another today
Git Down Float / Inter Sink Tip
It works and how .bet the captain of the titanic wish he had a few tubs.
Thank you for your fast delivery it arrived today quicker than I thought I now am looking forward to trying my new line thanks once again will be looking to what other products you supply I would recommend your company to others 👍🐟
Great line really Ben enjoying your class every day at 1 pm keep it up. How are we 🤔🤔
The line fly's out when casting just need to get use to how good it goes
Without question the best 8wt line I have ever used. Knocks spots of those more expensive kits you don't need. Casts huge distances yet lands gently on the water with pin point accuracy. Some job team Sunray!
My new 10ft 4weight Microlite got its first outing this weekend. I actually started chuckling while I was casting (it’s really that good). Loads beautifully - no excessive false casting needed , a smooth through action and an utter joy to fish with. My casting stayed consistent and didn’t fade - as it does when I fish with my usual 10ft 7wt. Light and responsive I played hard fighting rainbows and felt the fish throughout.. Honestly, it’s made fishing for me more enjoyable than I thought was possible; the kind of experience I always had in my mind’s eye. The rod looks the business too.
If you’re reading this and thinking - should I give it a go? - just do it..
(I also never leave online reviews - that’s how good it is...)
The rod has been designed and manufactured with precision and attention to detail. It looks exquisite and is wonderful to use. On my first trip out with it today I was casting further than I've ever managed before with a single-hander, without effort, and I was so pleased with the feel of the rod in my hand. I didn't land or hook a trout but came away very happy with my new purchase and can't wait to get out on the water with it again. The Proline floating line that came with the rod also proved to be an excellent acquisition (especially as it was a freebie with the rod!)
If it looks good it flies good. So said a USAF general after a trip in the Hawker Hunter. Well, the same cannot be said about all fishing rods, some much hyped super duper megananzipperatas are absolute dogs when it comes to fishing them for a whole day. They require intense concentration on every movement and every second of each cast and leave you exhausted after a day of what is supposed to be fun. Plus frustrated by broken tippet because with a stiff nanwotsitwalletshrinker there is no protection from a forgiving acton. But then there is Tom Bell’s sensibly priced easy actioned range of Microlite rods. Light to hand and light in action they are capable of producing prodigious distances when required and are capable of handling big fish. Oh, and by the way it looks good and does fish good.
I have to get used to ho much line goes out, it Flies with no effort.
I've used many different lines, but for the type of fishing I do (stillwater wetfly) this line is by far the best I've used so far.
It's so easy to cast and has added an extra 20-30 feet to the distance I can get with no extra effort.
After watching Tom's Youtube videos during lockdown, I decided to buy the Proline floater that he had on offer. It came today and I loaded it on to a reel to give it a try out in the garden as I have yet to get out this season (Scotland). I usual;y max out at about 23m but this line shot out the whole 30m with ease. It is the best casting floating fly line I have used in 50+ years of fly fishing. Well done Tom. I will certainly order the Competitor line when it is back in stock as I also like to have a white fly line in the bag for spooky fish.
Hi Sunray Team,
My first impression is Wow.. ! Used normally the other brands , and this Line is so a completely different.
So thin, no memory, and the loop is so slick / smooth !
The loop it self has no ( or little) coating, and the transition to the line is so slick and smooth.
It runs with no resistant through the guides. The loop we all know, are always stiff and do get caught up in the guides,
the coating will brake after a while.
off course the line casts perfect . (use a 7'' #3 Rod)
( also bought the 50yards Backing, also a perfect product.)
As yet I have only used it for wild trout on small streams where it feels like a 3 weight rather than a 4 weight. It casts beautifully. I hope to use it for sea trout but as yet no rain so no sea trout. I have little doubt it will be ideal in small heavily wooded waters. It would also be good to put in the boot for holidays where it could cover most eventualities.
I paired the #3 SC Dry Fly Line with my G.Loomis NRX LP 8'8" having used DT lines until now. First time out was into double figure wild browns on a large scottish river. I used the line with a 5 1/2 ft furled leader. The line cast very easily with excellent control and mended nicely, accuracy at distance was very good. I had 3 fish after shooting the line a fair bit past the overhang marker, distances I wouldn't have normally attempted with DT lines due to the risk of making a mess, the line cast perfectly. For a couple of hours it got pretty windy, I continued as normal when I usually would have called it a day. Overall the line is a pleasure to use providing a combination of delicate presentation, and accuracy, I honestly didn't think the line would make so much of a difference to my fishing and was a bit hesitant to make the change, very glad I did - excellent product !
I used Line Slik as recommended by Tom, while I can't say how the flotation properties compare to Red Mucilin but I definitely found it much much easier to work with and will also be using it on my furled leaders going forward. I have the World Nymph Line for my Maxia SX 10ft 2wt which I will be trying out just shortly and am looking forward to trying the Hybrid Tippet when fishing dries.
Purchased the shorthead #6 for a #7 9,6' loop rod. Without question these are very good lines indeed. If you struggle to get that extra distance you're looking for, these lines will help you out.
After using this line for a morning I was able to spey cast the entire line out. I will now be looking to get myself an #8 for my 12,6' switch Rod. For the price they are five star lines.
please to say that I got out fishing on Friday and had my first use of the Proline Float and slow sinking intermediate lines. Both li es worked well with no curling when cast and I hadn't stretched the lines beforehand.
I would note that on drawing excess line off the reel before casting, it did curl but this was minor and reduced with use of the line.
Overall rating five star.
I can honestly say that Sunrays Lineslik has made me able to throw tighter loops which in turn has improved my casting.
Just back from my first outing with your Stuart Croft #3, teemed up with a 10' rod,
On a small unmanaged chalk stream,
Cold, strong winds lots of bank cover, and no fish.
Apart from the location, and it's forna and flora, the only other thing that brought a smile to my face was the performance of your line, a joy, early days I know,
can't wait to try it again in more favourable conditions, to feel it's true potential, very exciting, keep up the good work
