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.
