Scientific Anglers Sharkwave GPX Fly Line

The World’s First Triple-Textured Fly Line

The Development of the SharkWave

When we introduced the SharkskinTM family of lines in 2007, they weren’t simply the latest in a long line of high-quality innovations. The Sharkskin created an entirely new category of product: textured fly lines. These lines, developed and manufactured at the Scientific Anglers facility in Midland, Michigan, represented one of the most interesting and groundbreaking evolutions in the history of fly line technology.

The benefits of the textured lines were numerous: increased surface area allowed the lines to
sit higher in the water, offering less drag, easier mending, less water spray, and easier pick-ups; the micro-textured surface trapped air to provide increases in both shootability and flotation—all while decreasing friction; and the microreplicated pattern increased the durability of the lines, allowing them to last up to twice as long.

The accolades mounted. But we knew we could do better.

Using what we learned while developing the Sharkskin, we developed the Mastery
Textured series. These lines took the high points of the Sharkskin technology and combined them with the easy feel of traditional, smooth fly lines, resulting in a textured line that performs like the Sharkskin, but feels smoother to the touch.

Then something struck us: Let’s take the best parts of the Sharkskin, combine it with the Mastery Textured series, and see what happens.

The result? Meet the SharkWave, the world’s first Triple-Textured fly line. Featuring Sharkskin texture on the tip section, Mastery Textured divots for the belly and running line, a smooth Tactile Reference Point at the AFTMA 30-foot mark, SA•ID line identification, AST dry slick technology, Improved Dry Tip technology, and Streamlined Loops, the SharkWave is unlike any fly line we’ve ever produced.  Fishing friction free.

I have been an avid SA Sharkskin user since 2009. Great line but costly. Casts like a dream high float. Down side - very rough. Got fingers and hands burned multiple times. I purchased the new SA Sharkwave line in April 2014. I took it to Arkansas on the White River for it's first use. What an AWESOME line. It has a much smoother texture but maintains it's excellent casting and high floating ability. The only down side, same as the Sharkskin - PRICE. Do I thinks it's worth if. You bet I do. It's the only line for me - - - PERIOD!
