    Talking Phoenix silk lines

    Hey Fellas, I'm looking at Phoenix's range of parrelel silk lines and I cannot make head not tail of it. Instead of line weight they have choices of Aa B,C etc with diameters and breaking strain, I don't really understand.
    On a small stream with a 7ft 4wt how do I figure out what goes best with the rod ?
    All of their DT lines are ranged by rod weight as normal.
    Do any of you have experience with thier parrelel lines or know how thier Aa,B,orC system etc works ?
    I'm looking for, as I said, a 4wt line and I'm not sure I need a long dt really, also it's more than double the price.
    Thanks fellas
    Yes, I do heartily repent. I repent I had not done more mischief; and that we did not cut the throats of them that took us, and I am extremely sorry that you aren't hanged as well as we.

    It's the old way of listing silk lines.

    Google silk line weights to aftm or similar and you should get a table which ought to help.

    Or contact peche a soie and get a 15m line for cheaper!

    I can highly recommend the 'half' lines from peche a soie. Once broken in they are superb

    Thanks for the recommendations for peche a soie, I had a look at thier "half lines".
    I notice they come without a loop, may I ask how you have put a loop into yours ?
    Thanks

    I use the castwell knot to connect my silk line to one of MrT’s furled leaders. Fly Angler's OnLine "Fly Fishing the Salt - 18 - Wading"
    Simple, reliable and you could use that knot to haul a truck out of a swamp without it breaking.

    Take care
