Short Head with Long Front Taper

To help people catch more fish Airflo has developed a new aggressive short head Striper line. The Sniper line is based on a shorter version of their 40+ line with its easy casting condensed head and thick tip diameter. The Sniper has a Dual Head Design which allows the line to perform as well for lesser casters as it does for advanced casters. Lesser casters can cast the line with only the front 15 feet of line out of the rod tip while the expert will soar the entire head to achieve maximum distance. They come in floating, intermediate sink, type 3, and type 7 sink.

Included in the Sniper family is a new “Custom Cut” line, made with a level 35 foot head of 14 grain per foot sink tip material blending into an intermediate running line. Floating and intermediate lines are looped both front and back, the Sink 3, 7 and CC are looped in the back only.

  • Density: Floating, Intermediate & Sinking
  • Taper: Short head, Long Front Taper Design
  • Core: Power Core
  • Range: WF8 – WF10 Floating/Int./Sink 3/Sink 7/Custom Tip
  • Coating: Polyfuse XT Dual-Layer System
  • Polyleader: Salmon
  • TDC: For true high buoyancy floaters or sinking lines with sink rates you can rely on
  • Power Core: With only 6% stretch, Airflo's Power Core braid improves casting control, sensitivity and hook set
  • Ridge Technology: a unique ridged design that reduces the lines surface area in contact with the rod guides to reduce friction
  • Micro Loop: Micro loops blend into the main line giving smooth transition to your leader and protect your fly line from the effects of capillary action
  • 100% PVC free
  • Climate Control: Standard (40˚ >89˚F) 
  • Colors:
    • Floating: Slate
    • Intermediate: Clear Blue
    • Sink 3: Dark Green

Airflo Technology

TDC: As originators of Density Compensation in Sinking lines, TDC –Total Density Compensation – raises the bar on density control regardless of line type. Controlling the volume and density of each coating, our dual layer PolyFuse XT process creates technically advanced lines with pinpoint accuracy.

Power Core: You’ll be more impressed with the line's incredible suppleness and handling performance even in the harshest of conditions. With only 6% stretch, Airflo's Power Core braid improves casting control, sensitivity and hook set.

Ridge Tech: The concept is simplicity itself. Airflo's unique ridged design reduces the lines surface area in contact with the rod guides. Consequently friction levels are vastly improved when compared to other lines on the market. Our ridges are also incredibly tough for long term durability.


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.


Micro Loop: 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.

Climate Control: Even though all Airflo lines are made from the same base material, polyurethane, not all of their fly line coatings are the same.  In fact, they come in a variety of grades or hardness’s which determine how the line will perform in a variety of temperatures. Airflo selects coatings that best suit the environment in which they will be used, each having its own merits and optimum temperature range in which they perform best. To help establish which line you require, they have developed a temperature chart that highlights the working temperature range for each of their lines.
