Airflo Ridge Supple Impact Fly Line
For fly fisherman in northern climates, who brave the cold, Airlfo has created the Ridge Supple Impact fly line which fishes great when the temperature drops. In even in the coldest of climates, this line maintains soft characteristics that allow for better mending and rolls through the Fall and Winter fly fishing seasons. We just love how this line stays soft and supple even when there's snow on the banks. After all, there's nothing worse then buying a line that feels good in the 70 degrees of a fly shop, but turns into unresponsive iron once it hits cold water.
At its core the Airflo Ridge Supple Impact fly line features, what is called, Power Core technology. By creating a line with a special low-stretch core, Airlo was able to create a flyline that you can really "feel" as you mend. Having such a high level of responsiveness makes it easier to set hooks, as there's less delay when the time comes to snag a "hog". After using the Ridge Supple Impact you will never want to use another Gumby line, that fails to set a hook in time, ever again!
One of the biggest surprises the Ridge Supple Impact fly line offers, is its ability to perform admirably on longer casts. Unlike other softer lines, we were able to test our limits on longer casts without feeling held back at all. So suffice it to say, you'll still be able to show off with those power casts whenever hikers stroll by. Being able to get that kind of oomph behind your cast certainly helps this cold water line enter consideration when selecting an all-around fly line.
Another nice feature offered by the Airflo Ridge Supple Impact fly line is its Dual-Tone color scheme. While simple in principle, the dual color tones give anglers the contrast they need to easily track the line. For those of us who don't always watch the line closely, the Dual-Tone color makes it simple to know when you're into your running line. You would be surprised at how often this feature comes in handy. After all, we know not everyone has perfect vision. Once you use the Ridge Supple Impact fly line, you may even wonder how you were able to survive so long with out Dual-Tone.
In summary, what you get with the Airflo Ridge Supple Impact fly line is a responsive, versatile, cold-weather line that stays supple, mends easily, and launches well. Of all the lines on the market claiming to be supple, the Supple Impact actually lives up to expectations. By staying soft, without being stretchy or unresponsive, Airflo has created a line that can actually brave the elements with grace. So if your in the market for a line that mends like a dream in even the coldest of weather, then you've just found your next new line!
Final Score:96% Ultra-supple line launches in the coldest of weather.
