Cortland Peach vs Spring Creek fly line

Forgive me if this has been discussed before, but I’m wondering if any of you loyal Peach fans ( like me) have tried the Cortland 444 Spring Creek. And, if so, what are your thoughts?

I have .both lines. I like both though I prefer the olive color of the Spring Creek. It is supple and a nice taper for casting on a variety of bamboo rods. I dislike white or bright colored lines in general as they can spook fish in clear water sometimes. Gray is my favorite. My preferred fishing is stalking large wild browns in clear water, so stealth helps, and I can see my line just fine when it is olive or gray or sage green. Personal preference.

The 444 Peach has a standard, classic taper, while thge spring creek lines have a longer, more delicate, taper
...a wink of gold like the glint of sunlight on polished cane...
