Hydros HD Switch Line

This switch fly line provides excellent line speed and casting distance.

Details

Ideal for switch rods, the Hydros HD switch line features our newest textured line technology for the ultimate in line speed, shootability and floatation. Comfortable to cast overhand, single or double hand, and to execute a variety of spey casts. Crafted around an exclusive Orvis taper, it features a 34-foot head with a moderate length front taper and compact back taper. Color change along the entire back taper aids the caster in determining the 'sweet spot' for a particular setup. To help maximize performance, combine this line with one of our 10' salmon/steelhead polyleaders (1R5K). HD texturing provides increased surface area, allowing the line to sit higher in the water, offering less drag, easier mending, less water spray, and easier pick-ups. The micro-textured surface traps air to provide increases in both shootability and flotation while decreasing friction, and the microreplicated pattern increases line durability.

1. HD Texturing—Aggressive dual texturing for minimal false casts, ultimate shootability, and less drag.
2. Orvis Line ID — Quickly and easily identify your line, no more guessing. All of our lines will be printed with the taper, weight, and functionality.
3. IS (Integrated Slickness) additive is integrated throughout the PVC layer to provide lubrication for maximum distance, performance and durability.
4. Enhanced Welded Loops — New sleek and durable welded loops make leader attachment quick and easy while holding up to repeated use. Helps to transfer energy more efficiently to the leader allowing better turnover.

    Love my new switch line - 5/4/2015
    By: from Dedham Ma

    I have only used this new line once but I am already in love with the way it handles. It is does well on single hand as well as two handed casting. It is a perfect match for my H2 8 wt switch!!!

    Excellent Line - 4/15/2015
    By: from Duluth MN

    This line casts extremely well (7 wt). It also mends very well. I use it for nymph fishing for steelhead and it is an excellent line. I do wish however that it were available in subdued colors as I dyed it to avoid spooking fish.
