DESCRIPTION

Control is made with the novice/intermediate caster in mind and has a design that generates high line speed and easy contact with the rod. Learning the double haul is a lot easier with shorter head lines like this. Control is suitable for fishing with all kinds of flies and are great for both river- and lake fishing. The taper reminds a lot of the Fario Tactical, but is a bit shorter and therefor even easier to manage for all level of casters. This is our entry level fly line with a great price and value, perfect for small to medium sized rivers. It is also a great tool for fishing where you have less space for back casts.

 

 

TAPER – DESIGN

 

 

Control 3.0 is a modern WF line with a short head length, featuring a long, continuous front taper backed by a shorter, level belly section that produces a noticeable load in the line. A medium length back taper improves the ease of handling. A further help for the good line control is the 3m long handling line between the back taper and the running line. This section makes it possible to hold a bit more than the head length outside the rod tip without loosing control when you cast.

 

The front taper is 5,1 meters in a #5 wt and ensures good transition of power and delicate presentations. The belly is 2.0 m and the back taper is 1,8 m, and the main weight of the line is towards the back which makes it load the rod perfectly on all distances. It also has a short back taper that makes the line very suitable for spey casts. Control 3.0 has a buoyant coating for good floatability and is slick and easy to shoot. It has dual colors for easy identification of the transition between head and running line. The line is fitted with small factory-made loops in both ends and has a printed ID marking about 50 cm up from the tip. Color is a Pale Lime Green head with a Sky Grey shooting line. The head length is 8,75 meters including back taper in the line weight 4-6 and 9,25 meters in line weight 7-8. Available in WF 4-8 Floating. Total length: 25 meters in WF 4-6 and 27,5m in WF 7-8.
