Scientific Anglers Sharkskin Ultimate Trout Taper Reviews
Sounds Cool, Casts OK Review by David
Scientific Anglers sold me on the merits of this fly ; it's versatility at different at different distances, ease of casting and durability. But when I strung it up on my five weight and started stripping streamers one day it cut my finger! You need some sort of glove. The texture is very rough and quite annoying. In addition, it's very loud when it passes through the guides as you cast. If you're a trout angler look to SA Mastery Series Trout or GPX lines.
Works as advertised but is rough on the stripping fingers. Review by Lawrence
I bought five and eight weight. I have to protect the controlling finger of the casting hand because of the "Shark Skin" texture of the line. The heavier line is more abrasive and will draw blood. The five is better to control with smaller fish. I probably won't buy another line as there are others just as capable as this without the injury potential and pain.
