    I'd have to go with Airflo. I like some of rio's tapers but have noticed I get less than a season out of one of their lines if I use it a lot. I tend to get about 2-3 seasons out of Airflo's singlehander lines, and longer out of their spey lines, especially the compact heads.

    so much mis information ... which one is better? the one you find that works the best for you... I've had airflo heads that had permanent coils in um I couldn't pull out..i've had the loops snap off or crack in under 6 weeks...all products have flaws...

    both are good products, each have their own good and bad....only thing I see is the airflo's seem to weight what they say they are supposed to within a few grains, while rio's can be off by 10-30 gr. the compensation seems to be that the airflo's lengths can vary but you'll have the right weight and the rio's are pretty standard for length but weights can vary...

    Airflo but then there Wulff Ambush line. I really like this line for switch and long SH rod.

    BTW is there C for redheads?;) Beats blondes or brunette!
