Hi Alan,

There are a few local people on this forum who swear by the line - Allan L springs to mind, so they must be doing something right. I used to religiously use the Mallard for dry fly on both running & still water but since I've married the Olive SLX on the 4wt Helicoil I can't see past it.
I do have a 4wt GT90 and it's more than fine but I prefer the adaptability of the SLX at the moment.

Is it the best profile for what you do? I don't know. Is it a good line? Aye 

Check out the reviews on the Barrio lines page of this website, might help.

Not seeing any reports from you?!

Alan,

Catman (Alex) is your man to talk to about the intermediate. I know he uses one and I am pretty certain he loves it.

Sorry Alan, I missed this :oops

The GT90i is a slow intermediate and most useful locally on lochs and small stillwaters for fishing your flies just below the surface.

Thanks for that so this would be a good intermediate line for fishing the likes off delgatie and lochter and do you no when you will be getting a 7 weight back in stock

Hi Alan,

Yes, it will be ideal for fishing just under the top at the fisheries. The WF7I is in stock, see http://www.flylineshop.com/barrio-gt90i.html
