Scientific Anglers Mastery Sharkskin Saltwater Fly Line
Introducing the new Sharkskin Series Saltwater Taper...the Ultimate Casting Experience!
By modifying the surface of the fly line with a micro-repeating structure, you can achieve surface interface
properties that mimic nature such as the ability of insects to walk on water, the shedding and self-cleaning ability
of Lotus leaves, or the adhesion that allows a gecko to walk up vertical surfaces.
Scientific Anglers Sharkskin technology is a precise texturing process that embosses the surface of the fly line
coating with a repeating geometric micro-pattern. The finished surface is no longer smooth, no longer exhibits
unwanted line flash, and can be optimized via the engineered shape, depth, and frequency of the pattern to yield
greatly improved line-to-water floatation, casting performance, and overall line suppleness and durability.
Another advantage of this new technology is complete elimination of line “flash”. Most other lines have slick, glossy surfaces that reflect light and can “flash” in the air scaring spooky fish. The micro-texturing process virtually eliminates surface glare, the finish is completely flat. When conditions are such that line flash is an issue, Sharkskin lines have an additional advantage over other lines.
One would expect this radical change to the line to diminish the coating integrity and resistance to cracking. Actually, the opposite occurs. The engineered micro-repeating pattern effectively introduces flex points that increase the
suppleness of the line and in lab testing, the durability and resistance to cracking is up to 3X greater. A good analogy is how a bicycle chain, although made of metal, bends due to flex points in the links.
• Super Shoot ability – longer distance with less effort -vastly reduced friction through the rod guides
• Improved Floatation – Micro-textured surface entraps air – Dual Diameter Running Line for optimum floatation when wading.
• Increased durability – Longer life of the Fly Line
