Airflo 18' Custom Cut Tips
These things are brutal to cast but totally brutal on the fish, so in short, they are an awesome product and well worth adding to your kit. The idea is to loop one of these onto the end of a Skagit head, and as both the Skagit head and custom cut tip are fitted with welded loops, it is really easy to pop one on and/or off. Better still, you can customise your custom cut tip (that's the custom part). What you do is have a bunch of tips that sink at different rates, then depending on what pool you're fishing, you chop and change the tip. It's an easy system to work with and will turn your double hander into a fishing machine.

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.
