Review: ARC 99 Salt floating fly line

I have been fishing the ARC 99 Salt floating fly line for the past two seasons of flats fishing on Long Island, NY. It has been my go to floating line and has been superb.

Also, be sure to check out their terminal tackle as well. Their tippets and leaders have been impressive as well, specifically
