PROFILES


We have been asked numerous times to provide a detailed breakdown of our unique line profiles and it just makes sense. The quality that destinguishes our lines from the competition is that rather than a profile that is standard for all lines weights we have tweaked each line profile to provide a similar feel regardless of line size. In other words if you like our 4 DT line the 6 or 7 DT will have a similar feel and cast the same. How many times have you gotten a line you like and bought a different line weight only to find it has a completely different feel? This won't happen with 406 fly lines.
