Default John Norris pro2 lines

Hi,
Has anyone experience with Norris pro 2 lines.
Bought my first 5 # rod and looking for a couple of lines - inter and sink tip to go with the Barrio floater I bought.
I realise they are cheap @ 12.99. Is it case of getting what you pay for.
Thanks.

Dont know about inter or sink tip ,but i use the floaters. Great lines for the money. Even better value are the economy range at 5.99.ideal for river work,no memory and fairly slick and at that price if they get damaged it' s not a major disaster.

I've just ordered a couple of pro2 lines. I haven't used these lines before but I have had quite a few 'budget' lines from John Norris and they've all been pretty good lines, so I've had no hesitation in ordering them.

I bought two of these lines last week - a floater and an intermediate - but I haven't had chance to try them out yet. They seem to be very good value for money, but the proof of the pudding, etc.........

I got one of the 5.99 floaters in a #5 for fishing the local river. It's a bit curly when I pull it off the reel, but a wee stretch straightens it out. Like previously mentioned, not a disaster if it gets damaged at that price.
