EFTTEX Awards 2017

The EFTTEX Best New Product Awards 2017

Available in a series of six Floating Fly lines from 200 grains through to 450 grains, this range was originally created to perfectly match the Snowbee Prestige Switch rod series. In testing however it proved far more versatile than that, enhancing the performance of a wide range of Switch-style rods and working perfectly as an integral shooting head on many reservoir rods too.

The short head profile extends from just 27ft to 31ft depending upon the grain weight and the steep front taper allows a short 5-7ft Polytip leader extension to be applied, providing a full range of tip density options that may be fished with it for the ultimate performance and fly presentation. With a soft braided core, the line has a limited stretch and is completely memory free.

The running line extends to a total line length of 120ft on all weight options. And whilst the head is a popular Ivory colour, the running line is in hi-vis orange, clearly defining the load point for the ultimate performance on every cast.

Adds Snowbee: “The unique taper and short head lends this line to being both a fast loading shooting head for easy distance presentation as well as a great short Spey line for the river where it’s ideal for grilse or sea trout by day or night.

“For the first time the new welded loop technology has been applied to provide a secure integral loop at both ends of the line. Directions are included on every pack on how to look after the line and how to apply it to the reel properly. Also included is a small container of line slick to help keep the line supple and regularly cleaned.”

RRP is £49 (€55).
