I used it for the first time this weekend for late fall trout fishing on the Au Sable River. The air temp was in the mid 40s. The line stayed supple and casts like a dream. I am telling all my fishing buddies about this one. I'm glad I picked it up in 6 and 4 wt.

The coating is somewhat harder and stiffer on this distance casting line, so it is not a supple dry fly line. The packaging describes it as an "overweighted" line specifically designed for distance casting with "modern action" fly rods, which means stiff rods. Since most rods are now designed by casters obsessed with distance rather than presentation, this line is a good fit. I like it. No welded end loops, though.

This is a solid product. I use it on some of my vintage fiberglass rods and old Medalist reels. The line is a bit over-weighted, and loads the rod nicely. It is enjoyable to use for mid-distance casting.
I have not used the product long enough to comment on durability, but other Cortland lines have always lasted longer than I could ask. I feel like I got a bargain with this product.

This line is tapered, but only on one side, unlike a double taper. Weight forward lines, like this one, are usually better at increasing casting distance and loading a rod with less line out. The increased performance comes with one downside, unlike Double Taper lines, weight forward lines cannot be reversed to use the other end after one side wears out.
