The Airflo Superflo Ridge 2.0 Flats Universal Taper is a modern all-round saltwater line for targeting every species that you might come across on the flats – whether permit, bonefish or tarpon. It is very easy to cast and it will easily load fast saltwater rods in a very efficient way. Due to its powerful casting properties and its universal taper, it allows an accurate and delicate presentation of all kinds of flies – whether small crab patterns or large baitfish. Further, it has a relatively short belly with a long back taper for repositioning the fly within seconds, which is a truly outstanding feature for targeting picky species such as permit. Therefore, it provides a great amount of flexibility, which allows you to adapt to the circumstances that you are facing – no matter what. It is equipped with the so-called Ridge 2.0 Technology. This is a special surface structure with grooves running parallel to the line. This structure enables significantly reduced friction, impressive shooting properties and silent lifting from the surface. In fact, this updated version of the Ridge Technology is much smoother and it is very quiet while casting. In addition, it has a so-called “Haul Zone” with a length of 3,6 m. This is a slightly thicker section between running line and head for improved line control while casting and while fishing. Furthermore, it provides a direct power transmission and it noticeably stabilizes the head while shooting. Combined with a very smooth coating, a thin running line and the Ridge 2.0 Technology, this creates outstanding shooting properties for an impressive casting distance. Last but not least, it is more durable compared to conventional PVC lines due to its innovative PU coating.
In short: The Airflo Superflo Ridge 2.0 Flats Universal Taper is an extremely versatile line. This workhorse will cast everything you might need – whether a small crab or a large baitfish pattern. Therefore, it is a great choice for targeting saltwater predators such as bonefish, permit or tarpon!

Established back in 1990, the American manufacturer Airflo is known worldwide for high-quality fly lines and all kinds of leaders. In contrast to the lines of many other manufacturers, these lines are not made of PVC. They consist of polyurethane and they are completely PVC-free. Thus, they do not contain any plasticisers, which would evaporate over time. Therefore, these lines have multiple environmental benefits: They do not release harmful plasticisers into our waters and they save valuable resources due to their excellent durability. Further, they combine an outstanding performance with a great value for money. In addition to modern fly lines, this large selection also includes shooting heads, running lines and all kinds of leaders. Therefore, Airflo offers the perfect line for every type of fishing – whether you’re fishing in fresh or saltwater!
