With all this talk and photos of glass rods, I have a question.  The new Hardy sintrix 7'6" 4/5 glass rod I now own – that gift from a friend – appears to be a fine rod.

I asked Big J about a line, but I'll petition the masses.  Anyone have a mid-priced suggestion?  I have not purchased a line since the George Walker Bush era, that I can recall.

Designed for glass rods. But the double taper and learn to roll cast, you old coot.
(Plus you can reverse it later, you cheapscape.)

Many, many thanks!  I like this description. 

"To accommodate the vast majority of glass, cane, and other slow action rods available today 406 lines were designed for accuracy and a smooth presentation, not a double hauling "rip your underwear" type cast. If you need a line that you can throw a country mile please look elsewhere. If you want a line that will land where you want without spooking the entire pool then these are for you."

While I have not double hauled since I turned 30 and I have not sported underwear in almost a year, this may be the line for me and the new toy.

PS: Several pair of new and/or used but washed Duluth Trading buck naked underwear to the highest bidder.   No pecker or anal emission stains guaranteed.
