  • AST Plus treatment provides continuous slickness that incorporates completely, continuously migrates out, works longer, and is eight times slicker than any other slickness additive available for better shooting, improved floatation, and performance. Easily sheds dirt and oils allowing line to perform better longer
  • Orvis Line ID quickly identifies the line with the taper, weight and functionality
  • Enhanced welded loop makes leader attachment quick and easy while holding up to repeated use. Helps to transfer energy more efficiently to the leader allowing better turnover
  • All PRO lines are 90' in length and incorporate three color sections at 8'(stealth tip), 30' (from the tip), and rear taper and running line

The Story

PRO Textured Power Taper Fly Lines offer 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 floatation while decreasing friction. PRO Power Taper is designed for loading faster action rods at a half-size heavier than industry standard grain weight. The advanced compound taper design allows for easier turn-over of heavier rigs, including larger dries, dry-dropper rigs, nymphs, and streamers. The Power Taper will load a rod deeper and quicker than a traditionally weighted line, helping to enhance "feel" and improve timing during the cast. The 50' head adds length for better line control and loop stability and the longer head excels at on-water maintenance for mending on longer drifts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Distace and Accuracy I bought this line for my 5wt. Helios 2. This line dramatically increases distance by at least 20 %. I've found it especially useful when I've had to shoot line in tight quarters where a roll cast was needed but still had to make a long cast where a fish was tight to the far bank. This line just casts beautifully and makes an accurate, soft presentation. I've used premium lines from Orvis and other manufacturers and this line is superior to any other

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro Power Taper delivers I purchased textured 6 wt Pro Power Taper line. This is the second rod outfitter with the Pro Power Taper line. The line has improved my shooting distance and accuracy. It has excellent floating properties and enhanced my ability to turn over medium sized flies. I have found the Pro Power Taper line very durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Casts great! I’ve been use if this on my streamer setup and I live it, it casts very well even into some wind and the color change makes it very easy to keep track of distances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pricey but worth it! Loads rod quickly, shoots through guides smoothly, and sits high on the water. Was a little hesitant due to the price but glad I pulled the trigger!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Life So, we bought a new Pro Power Taper textured 8 weight line for my wife's new Hydros SL IV reel for Florida salt from the beach. She used it today for the first time. I watched and smiled as she hooked and released over 20 ladyfish. and a nice sheephead. She turned to me as we were leaving and said, "I've loved you for 50 years, and now I know why".
