Which Fly Lines?

I have a question about fly lines. I have used a Cortland 333HT for about a year and have since went back to the cheapo white stuff that came with my outfit ( from Cabela's ). The biggest problem with the 333HT is that it has developed significant areas with kinks, and other un-uniformities in it. Also, it is too stiff ( in my opinion ). The cheap line is limper and seems to shoot farther because of this. I have only been fly fishing two years and thought I'd ask for some advice.
Basically, what kinds of lines do you reccomend? I want one that will last some time ( 2+ years ) before it gets kinked up, etc. Also, I want one that will cast well. From my experience, I seem to have better luck shooting line with one that is limper. However, all the advertisements seem to be proud of the stiffness of their lines. BTW, brand-name isn't important to me, as long as it is a good line.
Has anyone ever used the Prestige line from Cabela's?
