Experience+ is designed to be a line for all kinds of fishing situations and different types of casts. This fly line turns over long leaders with perfect presentation and accuracy at any distance you can cast. The long belly is followed by a handling line that lets you carry the full head plus overhang with great stability. An important feature when presenting the fly to shy fish, far away. But it’s not all about distance, this line also works perfect on short and medium distance. You don't have to carry a lot of line outside the rod tip in order to shoot line. The short back taper makes this quite a fast fly line and this is the key to being such a great allrounder.
The line profile is built up with a 4-meter front taper, a 6,9-meter level belly and a 1,5-meter back taper (#5). This creates a line that is easy to pick up from the water and very well suited for switch- and spey casts. There is also a 1,5m handling line that gives stability and durability to the hauling zone of the line. It also lets you carry more of the flyline outside the rod tip with full control.
Compared to the previous Experience the Experience+ has a little shorter head length, head weights are a tiny bit lighter and holding and handling line is thicker. This gives a line that is easier to cast with better balance than its predecessor, still with the same great functionality as the original line. The weight of the head is one line weight up versus what we recommend on our rods, this does not mean that you must go one size down on the lines. For all Guideline rods you can use same line weight on both rod and line. However, if you like a lighter feel, choosing one size down also works perfectly. In general, for medium to fast rods choose the same line weight as the rod, if you have a slower, deep action rod, then one size down is a safe choice.
The Experience+ is a tri-colored fly line, the head has a pale olive color, the handling line is orange to give you a good reference when holding line in the air and it also works as a part to hold when you want to perform spey casts. The running line has a bone white color. Experience+ WF is built on a braided multifilament core with a little stretch. There are small, factory-made welded loops in the front and back ends of the line and a laser ID marking near the tip. The fly line box and spool are eco-friendly and recyclable.
