I am sure the secret handshake is limp and powerless, much like the rods.

LOL

Jay,

KA-POW! LMAO. As soon as I can find a buyer for my kidney, I'm getting a Winston. :)

Wanna compare the cost of any of my Winstons against any of your Sages? Or is the thought of Winston Bamboo stuck in your mind? You know you want it cane boy!

How dare you. Bamboo is below the belt. I just planted some new rods in the yard last week. Should be ready for harvest in 2 yrs. I planted the bamboo by the greenie weenie patch, over by the glo bug bush.

I am ashamed to say that I was looking for evidence of potatoes in that picture. It took me almost 20 seconds to facepalm.

Afish,

It is interesting that Stroft compares their 3X against Orvis Mirage. Their 3X is 9.26 and Orvis Mirage is 6lb. However, we know Mirage is a fluro, so wonder why they did not do apples to apples? Orvis SS is 8.5lb. I am not sure I believe their statement about Orvis Mirage 3X being only 6lb but I can't find a chart for Orvis Mirage. The spool on their website shows their Mirage 6X at 3.6lb. I can't believe moving up from 6X to 3X Mirage would only result in a 6lb test Fluro. Orvis Mirage 6X is 3.6lb and Stroft 6X is 3.97. Little difference.

I do use Orvis SS for intermediate leader segments. It's fairly stiff stuff, I use it as a segway from my maxima to my real tippet. Is it a straight nylon, or a copolymer?

Haven't been out in a couple of weeks and was thinking of hitting the Tully early Saturday morning. Anyone interested in meeting up?

giantsjim, just get there early. Stream is fishing well and people are showing up in droves and early. Not uncommon to get there at 5:00 and already have someone in waterworks or papermill.

Showing up at the tully at 5am is a notch or two worse than those clowns that camp out for iphones, IMO.

Stroft is STROng and sOFT thus the name. The stuff I received today is incredibly limp (like the Winston handshake, JayL) but it is also a silly fine diameter that I will not admit to. I have ordered 6X for a more direct comparison. Not sure on your question but here is a copy and paste from their site that may answer your question . . .

"STROFT® is a monofilament nylon that has been formulated and treated during production to produce a high-strength, controlled-stretch, material. A typical example is the 0.20 mm (.008inch, 3X) STROFT® with a strength of 4.20 kg (9.2 lbs).
This is 30% stronger than some other popular high-strength nylons.

STROFT® also provides superior knot strength. STROFT® GTM is produced using a multi-level tempering (heat-treatment) process to remove material stresses formed during extrusion, cooling, and drawing.

Simultaneously, silicon and PTFE (a type of fluorocarbon) molecules are diffused into the surface to increase tensile strength and maintain suppleness."

I don't think so, but I'd do that before I got up at 4am.

Jeff,

Alright... I'm curious.

What's a spool cost?
