Looking to buy a replacement Di7 sinking line for my Stillwater fishing.
Any recommendations?
Not looking to spend too much on it. Any pointers would be welcome.
Cheers

Received wisdom would suggest that it is hard to see past Airflo for sinking lines. The 40 plus is a bit like a brick on a string but the Sixth Sense is a nicer line. They come in Di7 and Di8.

I agree with fossil fish. The 40+ casts a long way but lands like a brick. The normal Di7 is more versatile. Not tried the Sixth Sense yet.

Does it matter if it lands like a brick? You're aiming to get it way down deep so who bothers about a bit of splash on the surface? The trout won't that is for sure.

Chris, if you're only going to use it on the odd occasion, why spend top dollar on it, try one of these instead https://www.johnnorris.co.uk/john-norris-p3-sink-6-fly-lines.html

A good option worthy of consideration. Will think on.

Thanks
