Our lines are now running on the machines in the USA, and all going well, should be shipped later this month  :z16

Our usual UK fly line manufacturer is also hoping to get back to work this month  :)

Achieving normal stock levels is going to take time, but we are starting to see light at the end of the tunnel.

Best wishes

I have updated the website this weekend to better reflect where we are  :z16

The new lines are on the way, but still no sign of any output from the last remaining UK (OEM) manufacturer  *smiley-unhappy*  and we are doing our best to support them.

I see you have them as "Mark 2" lines. Is there any difference in tapers or is it down to manufacturer/plastics used that you are differentiating them from the UK made ones? Cheers.

Hi Rob  :z16

These are new lines, I've had a lot of time on my hands for R&D over the last 18 months or so and I'm really excited to be introducing them  >)

Tracking shows that our new lines have reached the UK and all going well - should hopefully arrive here towards the end of next week.

Much excitement in Casa Barrio  >)

Hi Peter

I am holding back on the SLX ( and other lines ) so that we can support the last remaining UK factory if they can recover ...... but this is looking increasingly unlikely I'm afraid  *smiley-unhappy*

I would give the new Smallstream ll a try as a replacement for the SLX Peter ..... I'm confident that you will like it  :z16

I'd second that, I have had a Smallstream II out on the water today for a series of tests - after some initial playing on grass earlier in the past week - and whilst the line is different in nature to the SLX, I'd certainly consider the Smallstream ll as a suitable replacement for the SLX; including use for teaching.
A very nice easy going line, I like it  >)
