Super-DRI™ Bass/MuskieAggressive Taper Line for Big Flies
- “Big Flies, Bigger Fish, No Problem”.
- Sounds like a typical day at the office for Pat Ehlers, one of the most innovative fly fishermen on the planet.
- We used our proven design and upgraded the original bass / muskie line with Airflo’s Super-DRI technology. The lines offer a level of control and feel not possible in the past.
- Taper: Aggressive front taper to deliver large flies
- Core: Power Core
- Range: WF6 – WF10
- Coating: Super-DRI Ridged
- Polyleader: Bass/Pike, Predator

All lines claim to be higher floating than any other, but in our recovery speed lab test against all other market leading brands, our Super-DRI fly lines had tip recovery speeds faster than any other line, proving that our fly lines have a lower Specific Gravity than any of our competitors in any comparable line size.
Over the years, we’ve all greased fly lines to help them float higher; now imagine a line that would give you incredible water repulsion without ever having to treat the line again. Super-DRI takes fly lines to the next level with a permanent compound of ultra water repulsive PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene), which due to new advances in Nano technology, its smaller particle size prevents water absorption into the coating.
Polytetrafluoroethylene (C2F4)n – The lowest coefficient of friction known to man, so the benefits to line speed and casting performance go without saying.
Forming a high speed casting loop is far easier in a supple line, but turn up the heat to summer conditions and the area of the line subjected to the haul can become sticky and drag in the guides as the line loses its shape due to compression.
With some clever engineering, we have been able to subtly change the hardness of the coating in the Zone area to reduce compression, resulting in superior line speed and greater shootability across a wider temperature range.
The ability to fuse Polyurethane post production led to the development of Micro Loops. Showing no visible signs of a step down, Micro loops blend into the main line giving smooth transition to your leader and protect your fly line from the effects of capillary action.
