I was a big fan of the Platinum XD floating fly line for distance casting in competitions and teaching casting on my local small waters. The Extreme replaces the XD and on its first outing certainly preformed better due to its modified taper and smoother, slicker finish. The line has a 38ft white head and an 82ft thin orange running line (120 feet full length) that allows for fewer false casts and the ability to shoot line long distances. The head did have some memory but with use this reduced. The running line was straight. This line coupled with my GR70 certainly cast and shot well with very little effort. A good line if you need that extra distance when fishing.
