Ghost Tip 9 Breakdown

When stealthy presentations are necessary, choose the Tropic Plus Ghost Tip. Our Tropic Plus Ghost Tip 9 features a 9 ft. clear intermediate tip with a sink rate of 1.5-2 inches per second. The 7 ft. front taper effortlessly turns over a variety of fly sizes without compromising subtle presentations when the fish are laid up in shallow water. The body of this line is 27 ft. long and equally excels at short and long range casts. The 7 ft. back taper paired with the extended body transfers more energy into your cast resulting in superior shootability.

Built on a monofilament core, our Ghost Tip 9 features our signature tropic plus coating for withstanding the hottest temperatures while still remaining slick, supple and fast shooting.

Ghost Tip 9 is finished in a stealthy clear and sand color that blends in with flats environments.

SPECIES: Tarpon / Bonefish / Redfish / Permit / Trigger Fish / Snook

DUAL WELDED LOOPS

Welded loops make rigging fast, easy and reliable. Cortland loops are strong, secure and durable.

SHOOTING TECHNOLOGY

ST coating delivers a reduced-friction performance with a glass-smooth finish and remains a key element in line slickness over its life span.

TROPIC PLUS

The perfect blend of advanced polymers to achieve a hard, durable surface that remains slick in extreme heat.

WARM TEMPERATURE

Ideal use in 50 - 70 degree (F) temperatures

TROPICAL TEMPERATURE

Ideal use in 70 + degree (F) temperatures

Our Tropic Plus Ghost Tip 9 is built for tropic environments and will perform best in temperatures above 70 degrees (F). Our Tropic PVC coating is designed to remain hard, slick and supple in the hottest conditions.

The taper design for our Ghost Tip 9 line was built to excel in both short and long range casting. The extended body and short rear taper allows for more energy to be transferred into your cast for quickly shooting your line. The mid-length front taper turns over a variety of fly sizes without compromising subtle presentations. This line is built in true line size so your rod is never overweighted when carrying a lot of line.

This line is finished in a clear and sand color for ultimate stealth out on the flats.

Cleaning your fly line is very important especially when fishing saltwater. Simply pull line off your reel into a clean bucket or tub of freshwater. Put roughly 1oz or more of Cortland’s Line Cleaner solution onto a clean rag or towel. Firmly squeeze the towel with Pro Line Cleaner around the line and slowly pull line through the towel. You should be able to see dirt or discolored streaks on the towel when finished.

The Package delivered without anyone knowing

Fishing in clear saltwater..... delivery of the fly to the fish quickly, accurately and quietly is the difference between success and failure.....simply fact. Cortland tropic plus with added "Ghost Tip" is a dream to cast, floats perfectly and is easy to pick up off the water when necessary and deliver again. Great job Cortland!

Outstanding line!

Love the clear tip for throwing at extremely line shy redfish on the flats. 9 feet seems to be a good length for the clear tip. Took a bit of getting used to but 100% worth it!
