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.

A line worth trying, Review by steveb
This fly line should definitely be on your shopping list as it casts great and it delivers well on the surface of the water . This line also competes with more expensive lines so if budget is a priority for your chose of line then this is for you and Angling Active is the place to buy it . (Posted on 19/04/2014)

Angling Active are great and their products and prices are fab too!, Review by Bob
The Airflo Ridge Impact line I purchased from Angling Active is great - it does more than it says on the packet - and it's probably the best floating line that I've used following my return to the sport after nearly 25 years.
However, for me, the real bonus has been finding Angling Active.
During the last year I have purchased several things from them and they are absolutely brilliant. From selection to order and final payment everything is really simple and as you're always kept informed of your orders progress you know exactly where you stand. In fact, everything I've ordered from Angling Active has been delivered faster than expected which has proved a real bonus at times - especially when I needed a new wind and waterproof jacket for the opening day at Grafham.
In summary, Angling Active are great and their products and prices are fab too!
