What's the "verdict" on the Super Dry Elite line?

    I really liked my 4 wt Ridge line from years ago, but unfortunately, I tore a HUGE chunk out of it.

    Now I'm looking at possibly getting that new(er) Super Dry Elite from Airflo. I was just wondering what others had to say before I pull the trigger on buying one.

    I've heard good and bad things about the line, both seeming to be legit, but the one bad thing almost seemed like a "fluke", for a lack of a better word.

    That's one of the great things about this forum... someone can potentially save you from making a bad purchase, or confirm making a good one.

    I'm always (sort of) leary when a product "self proclaims" something as "Super" or "Elite".... especially when both are in the title. :D

    Anyway, thanks in advance for any input.

    It's really really good. I've been fishing it for a while, airflo lines last a long time too.

    I'm always in the market for a good fly line. But 75 bucks is quite a large chunk of change for a line. The last line I bought was a floater, but I only paid 12 bucks for it. And it's still going strong.

    I guess you could call me cheap.

    Yep OMJ, I have several lines that I paid not even $10 for, and are still going strong.

    However, that being said, there are a few exceptions where I'll "splurge" for a higher end line.... if it lives up to it's name.

    Priority for me, is rod, line, then reel. Fishing for steelies is rod, reel, line.

    It is very good stuff. I have a few reels spooled with the weight forward. Awesome
