A super Slick Fluorocarbon running/shooting line with with little to no memory and extremely low coefficient of friction for long distance casts. Material: FluorocarboBuoyancy Characteristic: Floating Line Strength: 40 lb Thickness: .02Color: Chartreuse Length: 150 Foot
This line really shoots. It is slick and the diameter very small for its strength. It is not recommended for direct loop to loop connection for Spey/Skagit lines seven weight or greater.

Infinitii Spey Swivel made by Grabflies, attaches (via loop-to-loop connections) between the shooting line and shooting head and eliminates twists and kinks often caused by spey casting.
The difference between Grabflies "Infinitii Spey Swivel" and others on the market is that the loops are flyline welded to the best quality swivel (breaking strength 78 lb) on the market. The Flyline has a breaking strength of 30 lb, then doubled over, for an approximate strength of 50 lb.
I held off on making these as my first experience with Spey swivels was a hinging effect occurred during the D Loop, but with the doubled over flyline welded onto the swivels this isn't a problem. Since I use my Infinitii Swivel Tips I didn't need these for my fly presentation. What I found is that my Infinitii Spey Swivel can help your cast fly straighter as twists in the flyline are allowed to unwind, thus removing torque. Plus the bonus factor of helping your mono running line not get as many twists or kinks.

Pure Skagit Lazar Running Line by OPST is the slickest running line out there. This is the line for those of us who love to launch a cast, sit back, maybe eat a sandwich while the line rushes out of the guides and pulls line off the reel as it comes tight. Lazar Line is hydrophobic, extremely durable, consistent over a broad range of temperatures, and virtually impervious to memory. It features a slight, calculated stretch that allows for extremely sleek and strong knots. Don't like Skagit casting? This stuff will rock with your Scandi head as well. We searched far and wide for the perfect running line and knew we could do better than what was out there. Take your casting enjoyment to a whole new level with Pure Skagit Lazar Line!
I switched over to using this shooting line. It is almost friction free and casts a mile. It comes out of the water with very little drag. This line is thinner than most so go with the 35lb, or if you want a little more to hang onto the 40lb. It will add 10 ft to your casts easily. - Jeff Layton
If you are having a hard time with running/shooting line slipping out from beneath your finger when casting. Learn to cast with two fingers holding the line. Works even in the rain.
