Amplitude Bonefish Flueline
The first series of lines to feature the revolutionary AST PLUS slickness additive, the Amplitude will shoot farther and last longer than any other line on the market. It’s slickness down to a science.
A day of bonefishing will either be the most fun you’ve had with a fly rod or the most frustrating day of your life. Take some of the chance out of the equation with the Amplitude Bonefish. Built on a stiff core for tropical conditions, and featuring our AST Plus slickness additive, the Bonefish taper is designed with a long, compound head for casting accuracy and delicate deliveries to fish that you’ll swear have a sixth sense.

THE SLICKEST BONEFISH LINES ON THE MARKET
Our revolutionary AST Plus slickness additive produces the slickest fly lines on the market, period. Fly lines with AST Plus are 50% slicker than lines with our old AST slickness additive, and nearly 70% slicker than the closest competitor. The reduction in friction results in longer casts, easier pick-ups off the water, and lines that last longer than ever before.
How to read this chart: When measuring slickness, we focus on ounces of friction (or drag) at startup. Friction on a fly line through the guides is inherently a bad thing, so lower drag values mean that lines are slicker and therefore perform better. In this chart, you can see that lines with AST Plus feature far less friction on startup than lines with our old AST, and even less friction than lines from our top competitors.
In addition to creating the slickest lines on the planet, AST Plus increases the durability of fly lines by leaps and bounds. Throughout our durability testing, lines with AST Plus consistently performed better than any other lines on the market. On average, lines with AST Plus last 862% longer than lines from our top three competitors.
How to read this chart: In our durability testing, we affix a weight to the end of a line and run it through the tip-top of a fly rod. One cycle constitutes the lowering and raising of this weight to provide friction through the guide. In looking at this chart, it is evident that lines with AST Plus last far longer than the lines of our top three competitors. In fact, lines with AST Plus last over 120% longer than the closest competition and, on average, 862% longer than the top three competitors.
