    Default Line identification help.

    I got a 9wt sinking line 2 years ago when I stated fly fishing and it was for Tigers. Problem is I was new to the sport and I don't have the spool it came on and have no idea what the sink rate is, or what the line is.
    All I can say is it's dark chocolate for the fist 10m and bright orange the rest. I got it from Frontier if that narrows it down a bit.

    Is does have writing on the line but I can't decider it. Maybe it makes sense to someone here.
    The ^ is actually an upward facing arrow.
    The v is a downward facing arrow on the actual line.

    Thanks Jock.
    I eventually figured out the alpha codes but how can I tell the sink rate?

    Does the 21 mean anything?

    I think this might be the line with the extra fast sinking tip. If my memory serves me its somewhere between 8 and 12 IPS on the tip the running line section has a slower sink rate.
    Don't use this line to count down to a depth, its unreliable, and not really designed for accurate depth fishing. Its a fast sinker and designed to get the line out and down as quick as possible. If its the same one that I have, its a brilliant tiger fish line.

    Thanks. Was just wondering how fast it would sink. The 21 just seemed like a number but almost irrelevant.

    Will be using it in the surf and estuary here on the north coast, so just needed an idea of how fast it sank.
