    AIRFLO SNIPER SINK 7 FLY LINE 

    The Airflo Sniper Fly Line is a new aggressive, short head taper designed to load rods quickly, maximize power, and turn over big flies in the wind.  The Sniper line is based on a shorter version of the Airflo 40+ line, with its easy casting condensed head and thick tip diameter.  The Airflo Sniper has a Dual Head Design, which allows the line to perform as well for less experienced casters as it does for advanced casters. Newer anglers can load the rod like a cannon with only the front 15 feet of line outside the rod tip, while the expert caster will aerialize the entire head to achieve maximum distance.

     

    Simply put, the Airflo Sniper provides any angler the ability to launch big, bulky flies in windy conditions. This line has an incredible suppleness and handling performance, even in the harshest of conditions. Airflo Sniper is built on Power Core Technology which improves casting control, sensitivity, and hook set.  Airflo's unique Ridge Technology reduces the lines surface area in contact with the rod guides, vastly reducing friction compared to other fly lines, allowing the line to shoot further.  Consequently friction levels are vastly improved when compared to other lines on the market. Airflo's ridges are also incredibly tough for long term durability. Patented Microloops on each end facilitate quick leader and rigging changes, while smoothly passing through your guides without getting caught. Airflo Sniper is the perfect fly line for targeting bass, pike/musky, striper, bonefish, redfish, tarpon and any situation where bulky flies, windy conditions, and huge predators come together.

    Running line is everything they say

    I purchased this line in 9wt (375 grains) for surf fishing in central California with my Echo Boost Beach 7wt. I have also used this rod with a Rio Outbound Short WF9 (same grain weight) shooting head with mono running line. I was surprised at how nice the running line on the Airflo Sniper was - it is intermediate just as the description said, and the head sinks well. It casts for me similarly to the Rio Outbound Short, though I think it is more of a level line than the Rio OBS profile. One thing I did not expect is that there is only a rear loop on the sinking lines. I emailed Rajeff Sports about this and got a thoughtful and informative reply -- you have to either knot your leader butt section or make your own welded loop using heat shrink tubing and a heat gun. They made it this way so you can custom-trim the head length / weight. If making your own welded loop, use at least two inches of fly line, per Rajeff Sports. There are youtube videos which show you how to do this, such as for Rio's level T material, I think. It went smoothly for me (I've done a few before). I'd read that the running line on the Sniper gets fewer tangles than other running lines, and so far I find this is true. It probably does not cast quite as far as the mono / shooting head combination, but still pretty far, and that is an acceptable tradeoff for many conditions. Who wants to spend half their morning undoing tangles instead of casting and fishing ?
