Dan... I believe Angel is looking for the ultimate bite detection which would be a straight line from fly to rod tip and a zero stretch core. The older SA DC lines weren't on a zero stretch core but they had a front taper that was more dense and sank at the same rate or slightly faster than the belly. Jim Adams once told me that some of the BC steelheaders at the time were cutting the heads off of the full lines (which were very expensive) to make shooting heads for better bite detection at distance.
