The 40+ is a unique line; its short head length and heavy head weight make it effectively a shooting head with an integrated running line. The name 40+ comes from the line length, which is 40 yards long. Made to be significantly heavier than standard lines (per AFFTMA standards), the 40+ line will help lesser casters load the rod and get more distance. This line is about a full line size heavier than a “normal” line. They perform well on light switch and spey rods where a head system isn’t convenient. These families of lines feature thick tip diameters to help beginners maximize casting distance. Sink rate: 1.5ips
There’s always someone who wants to cast even further - for those guys we developed Forty Plus Expert its like the Forty Plus… just longer, with a 45 foot long head.
By increasing the head length, whilst maintaining the same head weight the whole cast is smoother, allowing expert casters to carry more line in the loop and with a little effort, send a fly to the next county.
The use of Power Core, helps reduce energy loss and smooths out wobbles that ultra high line speed can put into regular ’stretchy’ lines. Ridge running lines reduce tangles and improve shootability.
A new addition to the range is the Forty plus expert 'Booby line'. Originally designed for long range bank fishing on concrete bowl type reservoirs – this line gets the distance and drops the flies quickly to depths of 30’ or more. Head is 55’ long and is designed to be cut to length, it has a Di8 sink rate and would need to be cut to 40’ or so to work on a 7/8# rod. An ultra thin running line is ridged to reduce tangles and its hi vis orange colour is great for seeing takes – the total line length is 55yds. An essential line for any competitive fly fisherman.
Ask any fly fisher what element of their fishing they'd most like to improve and most would say they'd like to cast further - Enter the Forty Plus.
Enhanced with Ridged running line, an addition that makes the line cast even further than you ever imagined possible. Power Core as standard, and you'll need it to help set hooks at the increased distance you'll be fishing.
Doubles as an excellent Switch casting line in confined spaces.
