Line Specs: AST plus, Shooting textures, welded loops, Dry tip, Line ID, TRPParagraph
Grains: 110 -260gr
Notes: performs in warm/ cold water great for all flies and indicator fishing.
Hands down this is probably the best fly line currently in the world. To put it simply, the line is revolutionary. Many of the features within the line include AST plus slickness (which shoots the line smoothly, further and more accurately). Extreme floatation is within this line due to the texture of the line, more so the tips. The general-purpose taper allows the line to fish in many freshwater scenarios and for multiple fish species. The SA amplitude line is a half-size heavy which will help the angler load the rod faster and deliver more power.

Scientific Anglers Frequency Boost: http/www.scientificanglers.com/product-category/fly-lines/frequency/
Line Specs: Line ID, AST and welded Loop.
Notes: Performs well in warm/ cold water, streamers, dry’s, nymphs and indicator fishing.
The SA Frequency Boost will do just that to your cast as the line is built a half-size heavy. This is a great all-purpose floating line. If you fish as streamers or nymphs even large dries, this line will perform. Some of the Boots features are the AST technology, welded loop. One of the best things we like was how easy the line is to use and cast for many anglers in many different water conditions and temperatures compared to others within this category.
