Advanced Shooting Technology (AST)
Our patented dry slick technology sets the standards for slickness, and AST provides continual line slickness allowing the line to shoot farther as it moves virtually friction-free through the guides. You may learn more on our AST - Advanced Shooting Techology feature page.
Dry Tip Technology
Scientific Anglers' Dry Tip Technology leverages a unique 3M Microballoon™ formulation for the absolute highest levels of floatation. Learn more on our Dry Tip Technology feature page.
These proprietary microscopic glass bubbles are added to the coatings of all Scientific Anglers floating fly lines to optimize line floatation by effectively trapping air inside the core and to provide precise control over the density of each line.
Scientific Anglers Line Identification (SA•ID)
As a result of our lab's mission to continually improve our lines, we bring you SA ID. SA ID is an innovative line marking system allowing you to identify your lines at a glance. Wonder if a shooting head is 200 grain or a 300? Just look at the SA ID. Check out the SA•ID feature page for more information or click here to find your SA•ID.
Exceptionally slick and strong, our welded Streamlined Loops produce smoother casts and easier turnover with a seamless fly-line-to-loop transition making for softer landings and cleaner pickups. Learn more on our Streamlined Loops feature page.
A fly line has more influence on your cast than any other piece of equipment in your arsenal. That's why choosing the right fly line should not be taken lightly. It can, however, be confusing. We've created a taper chart to simplify the process. Within the chart, you'll find the optimum temperature use, taper specs, and "bottom-line" benefit of each line is highlighted. Print out the charts, use them as a guide.
