Has anyone tried to access Airflo's (mainstreamusa.com) website lately? I haven't been able to bring it up for about 3 weeks. I haven't been able to get a reply to e-mail to Iain Sorrel either but maybe he is traveling. Does anyone know if Airflo has a new web address? Thanks, MJC

I selected United States and picked the first dealer on the list and it seemed to have worked.

Last I heard, Ian Sorrel was no longer repping Airflo and the new rep is Tim Rajef

the last message is correct.  Mainstream is no longer the distributor of Airlfow.  It is now Rajeff Sprots LLC in Vancouver WA.  Their phone number is 1-866-347-4359.  I was recently in Airflow's webpage, and I think that I got there through Mainstreamusa.com.   I believe that Airflow's wegpage is hosted in the UK

I forgot to add that I ahve had two dealings with Rajeff and couldn't be happier.  They sent the items out quickly, and it only took them two days to get from WA to NV instead of 10 days from Conneticutt(sp?).  And about half of the packages that went through the UPS Chicago sorting center were lost

I agree with John. Rajeff Sports are great to deal with. IMHO "Jarrod is the man". I hope to do more business with them in the future.

Hi All
My understanding is that Tim has some new Spey lines coming out this fall. Also when I last spoke with him he mentioned that Dec Hogan will be helping with the design.

I fished 3 days with Dec's new spey line in the floating mode on the Deshutes.  Loved it. Just ordered it from Airflo at the number given on this message board.  866-347-4359, say it will be available in 2 wks. also used that ext fas sink tip ( 10 ft) on the dean this summer. liked it too. supposedly the 15ft tips for this line will be similar.

Ok "Tex;"you're on the board so you can run but you can't hide. Tell us more about how the line handled, rod, line size, and etc., and etc.

line-=8,9,10      rod=flylogic 13'  8wt     line has less stick= mends easier= anchor pops out of hole with less effort=  smoother stroke=better cast     line feels slicker thru quides   shooting line is thicker than wcutter= more comfortable to hold against rod handle for cast  and for hookup   I throw much tighter loops due to the continous taper changes and other details i've forgotten.  my standard casts off my rigt shoulder have always been weaker than all my various casts off my left shoulder. usually due to it being my strong arm and overpowering with my upper (right) hand. I imediatly improved those casts because I felt I could slowdown and powerdown especially at the begining of the final stroke. My left shouldercasts( riverleftdoubles and snake rolls )were already quite fine. they became outrageous. I could not bear to go back to my own rod( same Dec Flylogic, but with a windcutter).

Any idea what the pricing will be on these? As, many have said, the RIO Windcutter is a good line for 'beginners,' the Acclrtor is a whole new animal. Any thoughts on this line might compare?

 I believe price is about $120. Don' know i have never used my accelrs,only a "beginner" along with my friends and mentors .Never use 2or3 flies at once either.  However, am thinking about trolling a 60ft Bertram up the Rogue pulling  daisy chains and teasers.
