Let me tell you, you won't need to have much line out at all for casting, and I never EVER false cast more than once with this line. That's the beauty of it, cast out, strip strip strip, roll cast to get the line back on top of the water, then 1 false cast with a double haul and watch the line sore 80 feet... lol, I love my Rio OBS for streamer fishing, it has made it really FUN to cast very large and heavily weighted streamers. One thing to keep in mind is you definitely do not want to overline with this fly line. Get the weight that your rod is designed for. I can't comment on the sinking factor, I bought the floating fly line and just use Rio versileaders to sink the fly because then I can change sink rates by switching to faster/slower sinking leaders via loop-to-loop connection.

Hope this helps, you will love the Rio OBS for tossing streamers. I wouldn't recommend it for dry fly or nymph fishing.

I fish it from shore and from my boat. It's definitely more fun from the boat, because I can get a huge back cast without worry about hanging up on something then LAUNCH it half way across the lake (exaggeration) lol :)
