Working with Tom Larimer, we developed the ‘Rage Compact’ to help casters of all skill levels fish in difficult conditions. It is designed for surface or near surface fishing using a wide range of rod lengths. Coined a “hybrid head,” the Rage has a tip diameter and head length that bridges the gap between Skagit and Scandi heads. When the wind picks up or when you want to throw a wide range of floating and sinking polyleaders the Rage’s design will help people succeed where a Scandi head will fail. It is perhaps the most versatile two hand line ever created.
They were designed with a versatile 50/50 taper to belly ratio for all around performance and a tip diameter that will straighten out almost any fly leader combination. Available in wide range of sizes to cover trout Spey rods all the way to heavy eight weight Steelhead rods. Heavy duty black colored rear loop and a front loop with color identification band and the line size printed on the line for easy identification. If you had to own only one line for fishing a two hand rod it should be a Rage.
- Taper: Powerful Front Taper
- Core: Power Core
- Range: ST4/5 – ST8/9
- Coating: Ultra-Supple Polyfuse XT
This line features the following technologies:
Climate Control - Ultra Supple
Our Ultra Supple coating represents a major breakthrough in fly line performance. The low modules coating maintains its suppleness even in extreme cold conditions. Thus helping to maintain needle sharp loops and minimal line memory even on the coldest days.
You’ll be more impressed with the lines incredible suppleness and handling performance even in the harshest of conditions. With only 6% stretch, our Power Core braid improves casting control, sensitivity and hook set.
100% PVC Free
The original “PVC Free” Polymer coated fly lines, we at Airflo utilize solvent free Polyurethane as the base material in all our fly lines. When we originally researched our coating technology over 20 years ago, we wanted the best possible fly line material available. A coating that would be stronger than our competitors, could resist DEET and ultimately fight off the long term effects of UV. Polyurethane provided us with this and much, much more.
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.
Not relying on solvents to make it supple, Polyurethane flexes better and lasts longer than any other material we know. Our new Flexi Loop system incorporates actual fly line core into the loop and with our unique fusing process, creates a seamless weld that really is bullet proof.
