Glossary of Terms

Advanced Shooting Technology (AST)

Our patented dry slick technology sets the standards for slickness, AST provides continual line slickness allowing the line to shoot farther as it moves virtually friction-free through the guides. AST-formulated lines easily shed dirt, algae and other parasitic drag particles allowing them to cast farther, float higher and stay cleaner than traditional lines. As a result, lines featuring AST are more durable and last longer.

Dry Tip Technology

Backed by a team of 3M scientists and professional anglers, our Dry Tip Technology leverages a unique 3M Microballoon ™ formulation for the absolute highest levels of floatation.

Scientific Anglers Line Identification (SA-ID)

As a result of our lab's mission to continually improve our lines, we bring you SA ID. SA ID is an innovative line marking system allowing you to identify your lines at a glance. Wonder if a shooting head is 200 grain or a 300? Just look at the SA ID.

Streamlined Loops

Exceptionally slick and strong, our welded Streamlined Loops produce smoother casts and easier turnover with a seamless fly-line-to-loop transition making for softer landings and cleaner pickups. The sleek design also maintains buoyancy for improved fly-line floatation.
