SA Fly Line Review | Mastery Textured Series Information

The Scientific Angler’s Mastery Textured Series of lines in spin off of the original Sharkskin series of lines. A great way for an angler to try a specialty line without being a fully textured line.

Where the Mastery Textured line is different from its Sharkskin brother is the fact the line isn’t textured 360 degrees around the line in a cross hatched pattern. It is actually dimpled just like a golf ball on the four corners that touches the rod guides the most. Think about a clock, at 12 o’clock, 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock with regular fly line in between the textured sections. This gives you great casting, shooting, high floating line with out the abrasive texture of a Sharkskin line; its also not as noisy.

It comes in a lot of the same tapers as both the Regular Mastery lines as well as the Sharksin lines. In the next section we will show you a quick over veiw of the lines offered in this Textured Series. All lines carry SA’s Line ID Stamp. The Cost of all the lines in this series are $79.95
