Scientific Angler ID and Mastery Textured line

featured, Product Spotlight — By on March 11, 2011 12:45 pm

So Scientific Angler has really put out some neat things this year. With all the technical innovation that comes with an 3M brand, they may have rolled out the greatest “wish I thought of that” innovation. SA ID- a line identification that is printed on the front taper of a line. This is great feature for shooting heads or regular full lines.  No more guessing grain weights and tapers.  (can’t lie… Last fall I spent a morning fishing a skagit head backwards)

Another cool innovation at Scientific Angler is the Mastery textured line. I’m sure most people have heard about Sharkskin, and good and bad of its raised ridges. Ridges that allow lines to float high and with less surface area in the guides. The reduced friction = easier casting and shooting. But Sharkskin had some negative feedback since the abrasion of the ridges can be troublesome after a full day of stripping line. The Mastery Textured line is not raised, like Sharkskin, but rather dimpled like a golf ball. This new surface still gives you all the benefits of Sharkskin (high floating, low memory, great casting/shooting) but with out the abrasive surface.
