which intermediate Lines

Post by bruntroot on Mon Jun 17, 2013 11:21 pm

Hi Lads,

I'm looking at getting a couple of intermediate Lines DI 3 and DI5, but was after clear ones if possible...does anyone have any suggestions???? Also need a new floater but I think I stick with the 444 Cortland...just love them..

Cheers

Don't know about clear but you could always buy a PP line or the John Norris Pro2 or if you  want to push the boat out a 444 blue.

Hello Ant, I used to use the Rio Aqualux intermediate line, great line low stretch in its a light translucent blue green colour but your paying £50+ for it..   I now use the Airflo Ridge clear intermediates  slow and fast glass, very little to no stretch and they cast like a dream being ridged. they are about £40 but you can sometimes get 2 for £70.     Airflo sinkers take some beating, but depends what you want.

As always I would say barrio lines,they are fantastic quality and at £25 you can't go wrong.
The floater has next to zero memory and cast very very well.
The inter sinks between 1-1.5" a second and lifts off excellent for an inter.

I bought the Cortland Blue intermediate when it came on the market and they do exactly what it said on the label.
Ive got that line still but it cracked.
I bought another blue and its perfect after atleast 12 years.
I tried the camo and didnt like it.
Ive got a HI-D7 line for booby fishing and they are horrible.
Sooner sit with a lob worm on ledger than fish the Booby.

Hi Rob,

Money not really an problem for the lines and I wanted the lines for the comps.., but I must admit never been a big fan of airflo lines, i purcahsed two 40+'s earlier in the year a floater and midge tip and they do what they say on the tin....Bang out certainly 35yrsd + with next to no effort but the coil memory is terrible, I was thinking about the Greys Platinum inters' but I may risk your recomendation for the Airflo ridge ones .....Dave, I agree with you to some degree about the colour of sinking lines, I think if your fishing the big Northern Resi's the water is peat' coloured anyway and so you go down a few feet in the water layer and the visability deteriorates, but if your fishing the smaller still's with crystal clear water I do think the clear sinking lines can make a differrence to your catch rate.....

Dave I've seen you cast and you can put a line out further than ten yards ......maybe about fifteen...lol I know Lawrence Hawley has some decent Inters in up at chopwell but I don't know the source ...they actually look like the Cortland Blue Type and they're about £20 ...the thing is a lot of lines the same as rods come fom one or two manufactureres, so we could be paying 45 quid for a cortland and go up to Chopwell and and get a cortland Mill end for £ 20 ....
