I would probably go for a Teeny line, the T-200. It's the best of both worlds and much easier to mend and handle around your feet when wading.
I've used the 444SL lines for years with good success. It is a moderate stiff line with a good slick coating. It is also a good value. Many shops seem to carry fewer Cortland products and more Rio or Sci-Anglers. If I had to choose now, I think I prefer the technology behind the Rio lines.
