Are you going to have a go at a hot weather coating?
I would imagine a 9wt line of this ilk will find it's way into the tropics :wink
it would be terrible if it was limp :cry
it would probably be a great line for UK SWFF in the standard coating although a bit stiffer is better in the wind
and with bigger flies :z16

Good points Batman :z16

The GT140S is proving popular in Australia, so I'm hoping for some feedback from there regarding coatings. So far all the feedback from the Southern Hemisphere has been very positive!

Cheers
