Scientific Anglers Textured Saltwater Fly Line
The Scientific Anglers Textured Saltwater Fly Line is made with an all around saltwater taper. This line is a absolute joy to fish with. The Texturing Technology combined with the AST Coating assures you of a slick line that flies through the guides of your fly rod when you are casting to that once in a lifetime tarpon or permit. Extra Strength Loops assure you of a secure connection between your line and backing and leader butt. The 10 and 12 weight lines do not have a front loop. For very large gamefish up and over 100 pounds another method is better.
Look at the line and you will immediately see the line weight and other pertinent information printed right on the lineís surface coating. This is Scientific Anglersí new SA ID line identification system. The line holds up and stays stiff in hot conditions thanks to the Tropi-Core inside and the coating used on this tropical line. But, this Textured saltwater line has low memory, which reduces the chance of a wad of tangled line ruining your chance to catch that fish of a lifetime.
The Mastery Textured Salwater Line color is Light Blue, a beautiful color to hold and cast on the flats in the Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico. This line is at home in the Bahamas, Mexico, Belize and just about anywhere you find tropical gamefish. If you are a saltwater angler or plan to be one, choose this fly line and you will not be disappointed.
Textured Line Surface - The Textured Fly Lines represent a fusion of their traditional Mastery series and the Sharkskin series. Precisely replicated hemispherical divots, similar to those found on a golf ballís surface, allow the line to outperform conventional fly lines. This derivative of the wildly successful Sharkskin series have less texture on its surface so it feels like a traditional fly line but performs like a Sharkskin. The result is a line that lasts longer, floats higher, casts easier and most importantly, fishes better.
AST (Advanced Shooting Technology) - Scientific Anglersí patented dry slick technology sets the standards for slickness. Advanced Shooting Technology (AST) Fly Line provides continual line slickness allowing the line to shoot farther as it moves virtually friction-free through the guides. AST fly lines easily shed dirt, algae and other parasitic drag particles allowing them to cast farther, float higher and stay cleaner than traditional lines.
SA ID - Scientific Anglers Line Identification is a result of their labís mission to continually improve their fly lines. SA ID is an innovative line marking system allowing you to identify your lines at a glance.
Xtra-Strength Streamlined Loops - Exceptionally slick and strong, SAís Xtra-Strength welded Streamlined Loops produce smoother casts and easier turnover with a seamless fly-line-to-loop transition making for softer landings and cleaner pickups. More importantly, these loops are stronger than those found on Scientific Anglersí trout lines. They are built tough, to hold large gamefish. The front loop is not available on the 10 to 12 weight fly lines. You can make your own loop with thread and adhesives or tie on a double nail knot that will hold those 100 pound tarpon.
Tropi-Core Technology - Tropical environments are not only taxing on the angler but can also be taxing on a fly line. While too much heat can cause other lines to wilt, lines with Tropi-Core technology can withstand the warmest boat decks and hottest bath water. Combine the delivery strength of Tropi-Core with Scientific Anglersí proprietary hard saltwater coaing and species specific tapers, and you have the best in saltwater fly line technology.
