I agree 100% with Maurice and I maybe able to out cheap him with equally good results. There are factory second lines floating DT & WF at $9.50 ea, full sinking at $9.50 ea, and sink tips at $10.50 ea. Order them at http://www.fortackle.com/order/Catego ... ParentCategorySystemId=17. They're in Denver and been in business for over 10 years. I have this line in 3 4 5 6. It is excellent line. Very durable and easy to cast. I've been using them for 10 years and they are still in excellent shape with very little care on my part. When other fly fishers cast this line, they say it casts and floats like $60.00 line. Of course this is before I tell them the price. Subsequently, they have also purchased this line with equally good results. It is made by Northern Sport in Guelph, Ontario Canada. They private label fly lines for many others, esp. Orvis. It is sold in the US under the name Aquanova, but hard to find. I was turned on to this line many years ago by the old time regulars fishing the Little Lehigh; they all used and loved it. It was sold by Dale Clemens in Allentown before the store was closed by their owners Gudebrod. Trust me you have nothing to lose and will be pleasantly surprised and smiling after you begin using it.
Tight lines, Larry

Oh, BTW, while I'm at being cheap, here are 2 excellent articles on Fly line winders from our friends at Fly Anglers Online. http://www.flyanglersonline.com/. then just search for fly line winders. I got my reel at Wally's for $6.85 Home Depot was 7.95. And used the spring loaded clips screwed into a plywood base to hold my old fly rod handle and clips to hold the electric cord reel so I could use more the 1 cord reel.
Tight lines, Larry
P.S. On fly fishing stuff I'm also tight with money. Not just lines. Don't get me started on the ridiculous prices and bullshit about large arbor reels.

I bought a 3 wght DT Orvis wonder line - 3 years ago. Just checking it out recently, I found a few cracks in the last couple feet above the leader. So I just turned it around, and should be good for another 2-3 years out of it.
I paid $30 for that line then - which was supposed to be half off the list price. However, I'm still seeing them them selling for the same price. I also have several other wonderlines that have held up quite well
