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

The new lines are on the way, but there is still no sign of any output from the last remaining UK (OEM) manufacturer  *smiley-unhappy*

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 he 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

Best wishes

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  >)

I'd third that

When I got my #4 glass I couldn't get an SLX (always my chosen weapon of choice) so I got a Smallstream.
Lovely line . Not as 'brutal' as an SLX but I love it ... and it's not just for small streams !

Just a couple of brief notes to wind up this topic.

The last remaining UK (OEM) fly line manufacturer has now gone, attempts at recovery proved unsustainable.
This leaves Airflo as the only fly line manufacturer operating in the UK, and their primary business is to produce fly lines for their own brand.

Our new, high quality fly lines, which are proudly made for us in the USA, are proving a great success and are simply superb on the water!
The next batch is due to go on the machines in June and should hopefully arrive in July, including a new Intermediate line.

Thank you for your support, it is very much appreciated  :z16
Best wishes
Mike
