The Amplitude series from Scientific Anglers marks a new era regarding high-end fly lines! Besides the well known texture surface of lines like Wavelength it shines – or let's better call it “slides“– through its AST Plus technology. The developers have been able to introduce an additive to the coating that ensures a long life slickness of the surface. Enabled by diffusion, the additive can move from the inside to the surface and reveal its slickness after and after – just like natural lubrication of our skin. As a result we get a line with enormous slickness that will last 60 % longer and comes with 40 % less drag than competitors.
To be honest, Scientific Anglers set the price high for its techniques. But considering the extended lifespan and the more fun you will have (not to mention the more fish you will catch), the Amplitude definitely is worth the money!
The Amplitude Tarpon has a short, aggressive taper that quickly loads modern fast-action rods and provides quick reaction presentation in hectical situation. The textured, high-floating coating lifts off the surface very comfortably and thus allows for quick repositioning of the fly - extremely important when fish on the move require quick presentations. Another practical feature of the Amplitude Tarpon is its high-contrast line end that helps with gauging the distance to the fish during long runs and heavy battles deep into the backing - this comes in really handy when fishing spots teeming with structure such as bridge-piers, mangroves or riffs.
Amplitude surface/coating: The head comes with a more structured surface (Floating Texture) to keep it on top of the water and prevent to much spray and offer easy pick up / mending. At the intersection between head and running line you will find a non-structured part that allows to feel the sweet spot for shooting the line and perform perfect casts. After that a slightly structured running line with Shooting Texture like the surface of a golf ball slides easily through any guide and enables that extra distance if you need it.
