Our proprietary core technology combined a patented coating virtually eliminates all line memory and offers a line that is hassle-free. We have tested the Impact Intermediate fly line throughout the world and it has proven to be the most consistent and versatile Intermediate fly line available and has less memory than even the most subtle lines (clear or opaque) on the market.
The polyester elastomer coating found on the Monic Impact fly line does not contain the volatile chemicals that must be added to PVC in order to create a fly line. This shift in technology is important to maintain the durability of the line. Previously, these added chemicals would constantly leach out into the environment. This is why we steer away from PVC baby toys and food containers—they emit poison. As those chemicals migrate out of the plastic, a void is created in the compound. Not only does this alter the compound from its initial, intended characteristics, but that void forces the compound to crack over time. This is where the circumferential cracks on a PVC fly line are born. Add dirt, oil, and other foreign debris to the cracks and performance degrades. The Impact floating fly lines do not lose material over time, and therefore do not crack. This is important in the overall durability of the line and its performance longevity for the angler.
