The "go-to" trout taper. With a modest front taper and standard head length, this line does it all, good for all aspects of trout fishing. WF2F to WF7F and DT3F to DT6F available in Lichen Green with a Sunrise zone, or WF3F to WF7F in Sunrise Yellow with a Lichen Green zone.
It's a name with near legendary beginnings. A name whispered on the lips of guides and fly shop employees across the nation. The early prototypes were kept hush-hush. A few lines sent out here and there to get some feedback in the summer of 2012. Knowing we could count on our early testers for complete secrecy, soon everyone in the industry knew.
Airflo finally had a dog in the trout game. A 300 pound dog with big teeth and hairy nipples.
It's been a long time coming.
As the year progressed we were faced with the realization that we had something big. We were tempted to rush it to the market, but decided to take our time. Develop the new machinery. Test the new coatings. Figure out what other features we could pull out of the new machines. And get a feel for just how damn awesome this stuff really was.
What is it?
Super-Dri is the first fly line to take advantage of a wave of new nano-engineered hydrophobic materials. The guys at Airflo like to think of it as super-teflon. I prefer to think of it as super-awesome. Originally Airflo designed the Super-Dri lines to take advantage of the water repulsion properties of the new material and make the line float higher. What they didn't anticipate was the legion of other benefits. The amount of line you can pick up and mend is unreal. The lines don't just repel water-they repel dirt and scum as well. The lines feel slick all day, even in the grimiest of water. And best of all, Super-Dri lines float even better than Pamela Anderson .
But Airflo didn't stop there. Using the capabilities of their new machinery, Airflo added ZONE technology to the Super-Dri lines. The idea behind Zone is simple-supple lines rock out with their socks out and have many benefits, except when it comes to the haul zone. The suppler the line is, the more resistant it is to the double haul through the guides, especially when it gets warm outside. By changing the hardness of the coating in the Zone area, compression is reduced during the haul resulting in superior line speed and greater shoot-ability across a wide temperature range.
Wrap it up, Jarrod
When we first picked up the Airflo distribution in 2001, it was because Tim firmly believed that polyurethane was a better plastic for fly lines than our competitors' PVC lines. Super-Dri is the fruition of that belief; without the superior bonding ability of polyurethane Super-Dri wouldn't be

AirFlo WF3F Elite, 3rd Jun 2017
Reviewer: Richard Croft
This line is a noticeable cut above my existing Rio Gold. I have just lawn cast this line on my Sage 376-4 ZXL and it slips through the guides mush easier, giving more distance when needed. The line is extremely slick. I also purchased a WF4F for my 376-3 Kabuto glass rod and noticed the same results. Very satisfied with both lines.
