Super-DRI™ Giant Trevally50lb Core Aggressive Taper Line
- When we were first asked to develop this line, we asked ourselves why anyone would need a 50lb test core in a fly line, our testers in the Seychelles said they just did. The ‘hit and hold’ style of GT fishing on a reef edge is fast and furious, putting a fly line under extreme pressure as you try to stop these ‘bad boys’ of the salt trying to disappear with your fly line.
- Ridge GT came through the test without any issues – proving the strength of our welded loops beyond any doubt.
- Taper: Aggressive Front Taper
- Core: 50lb Power Core

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.
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.
Airflo fly line Climate Control – Even though all our lines are made from the same base material, polyurethane, not all of our fly line coatings are the same. In fact, they come in a variety of grades or hardness’s which determine how the line will perform in a variety of temperatures. We select coatings that best suit the environment in which they will be used, each having its own merits and optimum temperature range in which they perform best. To help establish which line you require, we have developed a temperature chart that highlights the working temperature range for each of our lines.
