GPX Textured review
Reviewer: A viewer from East Rand, Gauteng ZA
Very nice flyline.
The textured feeling of the line takes a bit of getting used to, but is a lot quieter through the guides than the Sharkskin.
Floats well & the 1/2 size heavier loads my Sage Z-Axis very well.
Line shoots very well - casts far with very little effort & false casts. It also turns over indicator & multiple tungsten flies at distance.
Colour is nice - the tip having a darker colour than the body.
Comes with a welded loop @ the tip - this is a little stiff & hangs up a little when you are trying to land a fish on a longer leader. I am likely to cut it off & neddle-knot the leader directly to the flyline.
Would definitely recommend this line.

I love this line. I gave it 4 stars because I've largely switched over to Airflo lines mostly because I think they're constructed a little better but the SA GPX taper is spot on. Any modern slightly fast to truly fast action rod will get along great with this line.
<i><b>J. Stockard responds:</b> The GPX lines from SA are being replaced by MPX in the Wavelength and Mastery series. The MPX has more weight toward the front of the head to further improve presentation, and still built 1/2 size heavy.</i>
