Airflo Sixth Sense Intermediate Fly Lines
Being the first company to develop non stretch lines two decades ago, it's fair to say that while the concept was always the ‘Holy Grail’, early product had its teething problems. The benefits of ultra low stretch lines are clear – smoother casting performance, positive hook sets, improved lift off and mending control – reasons enough not to give up on this radical concept. Using our Power Core braid, Sixth Sense flylines combine TDC technology with our old favourite ‘Delta Taper’ to create a range of zero memory lines, that cast and fish like a dream.

For nearly 70 years, the majority of fly lines have been made from PVC – a naturally rigid plastic that requires the use of plasticisers to make PVC lines functional. These plasticisers are anything but a permanent part of a PVC line. You see, from the minute it’s made, a PVC line begins breaking down - leaching plasticisers into the environment and contaminating you and the waters you fish. Once it has shed enough of these, it becomes prone to cracking, even failure. If that’s not enough, as it decomposes, PVC is known to release Dioxins - a group of lethal, bioaccumulating toxins. Consequently, it’s virtually impossible to safely recycle a PVC line. All of which is why Airflo never uses PVC. Instead, our lines are made from Polyurethane - an inert, stable, fully recyclable material that requires no plasticisers and lasts far longer than PVC.
