Airflo 40+ vs guideline pike line (intermediate 10#) both at £45 but don’t know which to go for?

Airflo make great lines- I personally use the RIO Pike/Musky Int and S6 lines which are really good! Maybe other options to consider!

Agree with Morsq - RIO Pike/Musky Int/S6 is a dream - sure a bit more pricey than others but I do love it!

The Airflo sniper is hard to beat. The scientific anglers titan taper is awesome, but twice the price of the sniper!

I have been fishing with the Airflo Sniper lines and they are excellent. I recently got a Sunray sink tip line on offer for £20, haven't had a chance to use it yet but seems worth a punt for £20. I'm sure the Barrio lines will be great as I have a few of his other lines and they are great. It's just that the Airflos are so durable I have not needed to buy anything else. I have the float/ inter and Di3 snipers but there is no sink tip in the range as far as I know so took a chance on the Sunray.

By 3 Weight Forward "Mill ends" or Airflo seconds in the appropriate aftm off Ebay for £15.....and cut 8 to 10ft off the front end of each line

You will now have a range of lines, to suit different conditions/waters each with a blunt front taper to turn over large pike flies ..

Much more cost effective than specialist "predator lines".....

( I'd go Floater, Intermediate and Fast Sink)

If you spend £15 , cut the lines down aren't happy and think I was talking sh!te I will willingly send you £15.

Alternatively just buy the intermediate version for about £8 and cut it down
