Salt water fly fishing with a heavy fly and/or with a long leader can make casting and slack-less presentations difficult to say the least. Especially if there is any wind to contend with. My line is designed with an extra short front taper. This helps the energy to be aggressively transferred into the leader system, helping to roll out long leaders with heavier flies into the wind with ease. Having your leader and fly lay out straight is vital to a successful salt water fly presentation.
Many times in the salt a quick short presentation is needed, especially if visibility is reduced. The Grand Slam line is designed with a slightly over weighted belly helping to load your rod immediately for those quick short presentations. With many salt water fly rods these days designed with super fast tapers this line helps to load those rods quick and efficiently.
Since it’s very difficult to transfer energy from a smaller diameter section of fly line (running line) into a larger diameter section of fly line (belly), it is critical to have a longer rear taper to help transfer that energy smoothly into the belly of the line. As long as your rod tip is connected to some part of the rear taper when casting, the transfer of energy from your rod into the belly of the line will be smooth and efficient. The Grand Slam Line was designed with an extra long (twice as long as most other salt water fly lines on the market) rear taper to help carry and control more fly line in the air when casting, dramatically improving distance and accuracy casting, which is so important in salt water fly fishing.
Shooting line and having some distance in your cast can be helpful when saltwater fly fishing. The Grand Slam Line has been designed with a slightly smaller diameter running line helping to increase shoot-abilty there for adding distance all in one.
SCIENTIFIC ANGLERS LINE IDENTIFICATION (SA•ID)
As a result of our lab's mission to continually improve our lines, we bring you SA ID. SA ID is an innovative line marking system allowing you to identify your lines at a glance. Wonder if a shooting head is 200 grain or a 300? Just look at the SA ID.
ADVANCED SHOOTING TECHNOLOGY (AST) Our patented dry slick technology sets the standards for slickness, and AST provides continual line slickness allowing the line to shoot farther as it moves virtually friction-free through the guides.
Exceptionally slick and strong, our welded Streamlined Loops produce smoother casts and easier turnover with a seamless fly-line-to-loop transition making for softer landings and cleaner pickups.
MASTERY TEXTURED Mastery Textured Series fly lines represent a fusion of out traditional Mastery series and our Sharkskin series. Precisely replicated hemispherical divots, similar to those found on a golf ball’s surface, allow the line to outperform conventional fly lines.
Tropical environments are not only taxing on the angler but can also be taxing on a fly line. While too much heat can cause other lines to wilt, lines with Tropi-Core™ technology can withstand the hottest boat decks and warmest water environments.
I have been bonefishing in the Bahamas several times a year for 15 years. During that time I have used a lot of different lines. The Chard Grand Slam is the best I have used. Read the info and see how it is constructed. Great weight system and material for the quick cast. Even I can get it out there 60+ feet quickly.
