I agree that the Tarpon Short is a terrific line for such purposes. It's taper is essentially the Outbound taper. The problem I have with them is that the head is so short that you cannot pickup and recast without normally have to strip a bunch of line in first. Since that seems to be a fairly common occurrence for me when permit fishing, or tarpon fishing, I choose other lines with heads long enough to be able to pick up forty or fifty feet of line for a recast. Like is said many times here, it's all a compromise.
