So here is a questions. If you had an opportunity to try any of the rio fly lines for a 6wt which one would you choose and why. I have the Rio gold, and had the nymph line. Both are great dry lines. The only sinking line I have from rio is the uniform sink in type 1 which is also a good line.

The Outcast line. I have it on my 6 wt switch rod and I can only say that it is the best casting line I have ever tried from any manufacturer. Teamed up with Rio's poly leaders, I can handle virtually any fishing conditions.

I think it would have to depend heavily on what rod it's going on. Some of my 6wts are very soft presentation tools, and others are very fast and meant to bomb out long casts with heavy flies.

A DS2 is fairly soft...so I wouldn't overline it or use lines meant for fast taper rods because they are usually a half line size heavier to load the stiffer tips. I would be tempted to try the RIO Gold on it in WF6F. I have the older Selective Trout floaters on all of my soft trout rods.

I also have the gold. I had the nymph line before that. Both are great lines but I really like the rio gold better. I found when the water was cold the nymph line did not lay all that straight. The gold how ever does. Can not wait to get the outbound on the reel and give it a try. Love how it has a clear tip.

I agree with professori , these lines are very good - perhaps the best I have ever used.
