I have used amnesia for ~20 years. Great inexpensive shooting line. Super leader loops when threaded through fly line (sewing needle)and super-glued. Indicator leader butts and makes a very nice "hinge" leader.
Pros: Great colors as indicator, Hard slick finish
Cons: none
Best Uses: Line loops zap-a-gap, Great shooting line, Leader butts

Amnesia Shooting Line

Buyer

About Me:

This will be used as a running line for a spey fishing setup as running line for Sakgit and Scandi shooting heads on Pacific Northwest Rives. I spend an average of 80 days a year on rivers and Amnesia line is tough and as it's name suggests, has no memory. There are pricer and fancier running lies out there, but this is the original. I also use Amnesia line as a butt section from fly lines to leaders on my trout rods with same results, tough and memory free.
Pros: Inexpensive and Effective, Good For Variety Of Fish, Flies Through the Guides, Easy To Handle
Cons: Does Not Float
Best Uses: Spey Fishing, Summer Winter Steelhead

About Me:

Very good running or shooting line. If you pre-stretch it and use a shooting basket, it won't tangle. I shoots much farther than vinyl lines and costs $2-3 per 100 ft section (versus $30-40 for the high end vinyl lines form Orvis or Scientific anglers).
Pros: Easy To Handle
Cons: none
Best Uses: Running line
Use as butt section for "hinge leaders"

About Me:
Avid Fisher
We use this line to create the butt section on fly fishing "hinge leaders" for nymph fishing in deep, fast sections. There are several sites that will come up in a GOOGLE search if you are interested in learning more about this type of leader. Hinge leaders have increased our catches because the fly is in the strike zone longer. We like the high vis of this line as it enhances the strike detection.
Pros: Easy To Handle, High Vis, Strong
Cons: none
Best Uses: Fly fishing
