Just doing my bit to keep things lively here in forum land. Thought I'd share my latest equipment adventure—Stroft tippet material. Stuff I've read says it's stronger but slightly stiffer. I think I was hooked by the clever spool configuration and the way the tippet end is clamped in the holder. Time will tell if the stiffness is a factor with drifts or something I can overcome.

Anyone else ever tried it?

And I confess that this was one of those late-night-after-2-glasses-of-wine online purchases. Had I taken the time to look more closely at the vendor, I would have realized it was located in New Zealand.

Tin.......

I believe Terry at The Flyfishermans Place also sells Stroft tippet. He speaks very highly of it.

I’m so satisfied with my Rio and Trouthunter that I haven’t tried it, so I can’t give you any personal observations. For what it’s worth.......Terry uses it and likes it.

Thanks Dave! I've heard/read good things about Trouthunter too. I discovered a spool of 5x when I cleaned my vest but can't remember where it came from. I'll try that too.

Have used it for several years. Positive experience and often available online for discounts. It is the strongest mono on the market.
