Surf fishing around Tasmania

by Ron McBain 

I regard myself as an all round angler, fishing for trout in small mountain streams right through to fishing for marlin, tuna and other game fish in our deep waters.

scientific anglersWe have just received the below update from Scientific Anglers concerning further testing on the new AST Plus slickness additive. These figures are quite incredible and can truly be said that the AST Plus is a game changer in the manufacturing of fly lines.

When you read these figures the new Amplitude fly lines are the best value fly lines on the market.


In our never-ending effort to bring you the best products and most up-to-date information available, we wanted to share with you some exciting developments regarding our new AST PLUS slickness additive. When we launched AST PLUS in the new Amplitude series several months ago, the test results we published were excellent. AST PLUS was far slicker than our current AST additive, and the lines lasted far longer than any of the competition’s lines.

However, in subsequent testing, we have discovered that AST PLUS is even better than we originally thought. Take a look at these updated stats:

AST PLUS is 70% SLICKER than the closest competition.

AST PLUS lasts, on average, 862% LONGER, than lines from our closest three competitors.
