Ridge StriperCold Saltwater Workhorse
- There’s a difference between cold and really cold… especially when your fly line starts misbehaving.
- The original environment where fly fishers started to appreciate the benefits of polyurethane coatings – an unrelenting toughness and unbelievable suppleness in the coldest conditions made the original a firm favourite with east coast striper fishers.
- Eastern Atlantic Salmon fisherman have found this to be a great line also, easy to manage, great floating, and superb casting in their cold waters.
- Improved by the inclusion of Power Cores, memory is reduced to zero and the uncanny ability to set hooks at long range helps you catch even more fish. Floating and Intermediate lines are looped.
- Taper: Short Front Taper And Mid Length Belly
- Core: Power Core
- Range: WF7 – WF10
- Coating: Floating/Intermediate – Ridged Polyfuse XT | Sinking – Polyfuse XT
- Polyleader: Salmon

For true high buoyancy floaters or sinking lines with sink rates you can rely on, look out for the TDC logo.
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.
