The Impact taper design with its relatively short front taper and long rear taper loads easily and work well in a wide range of applications.
After the incredible success and subsequent time spent fishing the original 3’ Mini Tip lines, Airflo realised that a lot more development could be done with this product.
New for 2012, Airflo release a range of Slow and Fast Intermediate tip lines as part of the Ridge Supple Impact taper range. Designed specifically for the Stillwater angler, these lines will also be extremely useful for streamer fishing in both coastal and running waters.
The Impact taper floating fly line is a favourite amongst anglers looking to carry heavier flies. Hot Coral / White
3' Mini Tip
This 3 foot clear intermediate tipped fly line from Airflo has a Hot Coral main line.
6’ Slow Tip
First in the new line up is the 6’ Slow Intermediate tip, this line has a Pale Fluorescent Yellow main line and a transparent Olive 6’ tip section.
Developed with the ‘washing line’ technique in mind, this line keeps you in direct contact even with the slowest of retrieves, without sinking the flies too deep and eliminates the hinge you experience on the 3’ fast intermediate tip ( this hinge is great for deep nymphing, but not perfect for surface fishing).
6’ Fast tip
This 6’ fast tip helps you drop the flies deeper in the water column, but due to its long level tip section, does not pull down the floating belly for improved depth control.
Pale olive main body with a translucent green fast intermediate tip section, this line is perfect for wake avoidance with streamers and exceptional for deep nymphing on windy days.
12’ Fast tip
The perfect line for getting deep and holding depth, giving you control over your flies level on the brightest of days when fish refuse to come up in the water column.
The new dual tone colour scheme provides contrast and the Power Core will help you drill hooks on long range strikes.
