PE+ LIQUID CRYSTAL
Cortland’s tournament-winning Liquid Crystal floating fly lines represent a glimpse into the future of floating flyline technology. Made by extruding a proprietary blend of clear polyethylene and advanced co-polymers over a monofilament core, the Liquid Crystal is virtually invisible in the water. The hard PE+™ coating has a supersmooth finish with an exceptionally low coefficient of friction so it shoots faster and farther than any conventional PVC floating fly line ever made. The coating is permanently fused to the monofilament core so there is no line stretch — for unequalled strike detection and instantaneous hooksets. Highly abrasion resistant and durable, Liquid Crystal comes in a flats taper for
bonefish and permit (WF 6 - 9 F), and a tarpon taper (WF 10 - 12 F), each uniquely profiled for quick shots and accurate presentations with a minimum of false casting. Dual welded loops make changing rigs fast and easy.
SKY BLUE LIQUID CRYSTAL
You don’t always need a completely invisible line, and some anglers (and their guides) prefer a line that’s easy to see. Visibility helps with loop control when casting and makes it easier to locate your fly when it’s underwater. The new Sky Blue Liquid Crystal is made with the same polyethylene coating, but it is extruded over a blue-tinted monofilament core. The line fades from stronger blue color in the center to a light blue tint on the outer edges, making the line easy to see from above, while providing a subtle, blurry profile when viewed by a fish from below the surface. We believe the Sky Blue Liquid Crystal is the perfect compromise, offering a line that’s nearly invisible to the fish but easily seen by anglers and their guides.
The Precision Tropic PlusTM series of floating fly lines is made with cores manufactured in our Cortland, New York, headquarters and treated with specially formulated primers for optimum adhesion and stiffness. Our Tropic Plus coatings are formulated with a blend of advanced polymers to achieve a hard, durable surface that shoots well and stands up to the blistering heat of the tropical sun — or the deck of a skiff. Tapers are uniquely profiled for each fly fishing application and all lines come with dual welded loops for easy rigging and leader changes. Also available in Ghost Tips of different lengths.
