Scientific Anglers’ new AST Plus slickness additive, a proprietary formulation dispersed throughout their fly line coatings that extends “the line’s slick behavior throughout the life of the line.” AST Plus will be available in Scientific Anglers’ Amplitude series of lines first available in September (MSRP of $129.95).
“AST Plus is the newest innovation in our never-ending quest to create the slickest fly lines on the planet,” says research and development manager Josh Jenkins. This new, proprietary formulation is dispersed throughout the entire fly-line coating, from the core to the surface. Testing has shown that fly lines made with AST Plus are up to 40% slicker and last over 60% longer than lines with no additive.”
AST Plus naturally migrates to the surface of the fly line as the coating begins to wear. The compound used in AST Plus is extremely unique in its properties, because it can actually move within the coating, extending the line’s slick behavior throughout the life of the line. “For more visit www.scientificanglers.com
