Airflo Superflo Power Taper Weight-Forward Floating Fly Line
Sizes: 4, 5, 6, 7
With an aggressive rear taper, and forward-biased concentration of mass the Superflo Power Taper is designed to be anything but subtle. Even it’s coloration packs a punch.
Ideal for throwing big flies or hucking junk. Quickly loads at short range. Large tip diameter turns over big flies. Longer rear taper provides multiple pick up points. Haul zone extends the usable head length. Ultra-thin running line shoots like hell and takes up less spool space.
Airflo Lines Features and Benefits:
Airflo Superflo: Thanks to a completely new material formulation, each and every Superflo line moves through the extruder with less resistance than ever. This allows for seamlessly smooth, flawless diameter transitions and the ability to produce some of the thinnest, lightest running line in existence. So anglers can pick up more line and cast it further than ever before.
Zone Tech: Fly line compression is a concept rarely discuses by other fly line manufacturers. But the ability to strategically control and very the hardness or softness of the line along its nittier length hugely impacts the amount of energy required to form a loop and generate line speed. Zone Tech allows us mastery of this key variable, maximizing the performance of every inch of line.
Ridge Tech: The Airflow Ridge -the world’s first textured fly line. Its genius lies in the its very inception. You see, unlike most textured lines, the Ridge’s texture actually runs parallel to the line itself. As a result, these remarkable lines maintain suppleness across their length, and produce far less noise and rod guide friction than their competitors. All without compromising shoot ability.
100% PVC Free: We’ve always been PVC free. And with all the benefits of Polyurethane, we’ll never change. More environmentally responsible than PVC. Greater resistance to UV degradation, sunscreen DEET, fuel and solvents than PVC. No leaching of harmful contaminants. Safely and completely recyclable. In our book, Polyurethane wins, hands down.
Micro Loop: Polyurethane is a true thermoplastic, so it can be semi-liquefied (using heat) and fused back together to form the strongest loops in the business. What’s more, Airflo loops seamlessly transition back into the line tip or running line – eliminating the “hinge point” so characteristic of PVC loops. This achilles heel of PVC lines is a common point of failure.
Line Tag: Airflo’s Line Marking System is permanently welded into our factory-fitted loops, making it easy to for any angler to identify which line and/or tip they’re using. Each label clearly shows the line’s weight and density – a benefit of particular value to anglers utilizing our trusted system of two hand tips, heads and running lines.
FlexiLoop: Of particular importance to anglers throwing heavy tips and heads, the FlexiLoop is the connections that actually keeps you connected. No product failure here -thanks to a separate PU sleeve that adds bulletproof structural integrity. The FlexiLoop is the gold standard of loops – particularly in the demanding world of two handed angling.
Thermo Stability: Yet another benefit of Polyurethane is its natural ability to adapt to a wide range of environmental conditions. PU stiffens far less in the cold than PVC and is much less prone to wilting in tropical heat than PVC lines. Consequently, we’re uniquely able to engineer lines suited to the widest of environmental conditions. And again, Polyurethane wins!
Shop Staff Notes: The new Airflo Superflo Power Taper fly line offers superb technologies that will help you cast further (ridge texturing) with powerful accuracy (power taper) and durability (polyurethane). Airflo lines use polyurethane for their coating instead of PVC and plasticizers making them both UV and crack resistant and far less toxic in manufacturing, use and disposal. The Power Taper is perfect for Western rivers, bigger flies or nymph rig set ups and/or faster action rods. We sell more power taper fly lines than other tapers because they just cast so nice on the rivers we fish (because it’s never windy on the MO!).
