Just saw that Wulff has created a new "textured" Bermuda Triangle Taper.
Anyone use one yet?

I doubt it’s like sandpaper. That Sharkskin was pretty brutal, I fished a friend’s setup that had that line on it and it sounded like it was eating through the guides.Textured fly lines... Be hard to recommend any fly line that’s likely to cause more line cuts on my angler’s stripping fingers. Hope they did their research in the field first (unlike what Scientific Anglers did with that awful Sharkskin line a few years back...).
Great report Ken! Can you compare its "goes long effortlessly" to the BTT Shorts?I set up a new TFO Axiom II X with the new textured Wulff line about a month ago. I have been fishing it and have put it in quite a few clients hands in that time.
I am no fan of textured lines and the new Wulff line has not swayed me much.
Here are some observations.
It is, like most of the others tough on your fingers.
Not as loud as Sharkskin
Picks up dirt and debris quickly
Generates great speed and fly's through the guides.
Goes long effortlessly
I personally do not think that the finger issues and the way it picks up dirt are worth it. Others may.
I have 5 rods on my skiff that are now rigged with the non textured Bermuda Triangle line. I personally do not think that there is enough difference in performance to justify the finger burns and fast dirt collection issues.
I do highly recommend the non textured line and love the fact that they are offered in #5 weight.
The "goes long effortlessly" refers to the fact that you would have to put more effort into throwing long with the non textured BTT. The difference is enough to notice. It flies through the guides.Great report Ken! Can you compare its "goes long effortlessly" to the BTT Shorts?
I underline with the BTT by one...I am just curious, but speaking of shooting the BTT, do you guys ever find yourselves underlining the BTT? I know the grain weights are a full line weight heavier. curious if anyone does this for faster line speed, or if there is no need for it
The difference between the BTT and the BTT Short is the BTT is a full line weight heavier than what affta would consider to be a true to line weight rating, as well as being a standard head length of about 30ft, while the BTT Short is a little over 1/2 a line weight over than a standard weight rated fly line and of course the head is shorter at 23ft (for an 8wt line).Great report Ken!
