    I'm sure I seen a red Mackenzie shooting head at around 1 minute 30 seconds could be wrong though lol

    Mckenzie are made by Airflo as far as i'm aware.

    I think Rio have now overtaken SA in terms of fly line quality and variety.

    That AST coating on Scientific anglers lines is still great though.

    Not the DTX lines, but the competition lines have come from RIO previously

    They can, but then there would be whining and moaning about paying the cost...

    Just found this part of the forum [usualy just go to the lounge or the scottish river section] and have to say it is the most intresting part for me. Watched them making the split cane rods which brought back memories of sitting there having to put six turns of thread every inch of the rod to make it look nice.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Very Interesting Video & would have been nice to see the whole process of manufacturing the Rio Lines but there is obviously too many secrets in how they are made.
