I have just looked on the Airflo website and can no longer see the 6th sense DI7 anymore.It looks like it has been replace by the Airflo 40+ Sniper Fly Lines

I am in possession of some other fast sink lines including a Steve Parton Boobie Basher and even a length on lead core not to mention my DI8 as above.
But I was hoping to replace my DI7 which is a little past it's best.

Thanks Doug.
I was looking for the yellow & Black (non sweep) line.

I am finding it a tad confusing looking through the lines on the Airflo website.
It does not seem that the 40+Sniper lines have replaced the 6th sense non stretch lines. It says it is aimed at casting large flies long distances. Quote “These lines are built for the sole purpose of throwing big flies a long way.” But goes on to say “Based on a punchier more compact version of our award winning 40+ fly lines”

So I have asked them the question via the website.

the answer is yes from Airflo
(These lines are all on a braide core, so are non-stretch throughout.)

But I found a boxed and unused 6th Sense DI7 line on Ebay for £30, so sorted for winter.

I'm thinking that it is a bit befuddling glancing through the lines on the Airflo site.
It doesn't appear to be that the 40+Sniper lines have supplanted the sixth sense non stretch lines. It says it is pointed toward projecting huge flies significant distances. Quote "These lines are worked for the sole reason for tossing large flies quite far."

Ĺinks deleted. Please refer to posting guidelines

But proceeds to say "In view of a punchier more minimized adaptation of our honor winning 40+ fly lines"

Sorry Tony / everyone it's been a manic time for me lately and I dropped the ball on this. It's a result of aging software. I thought a quickfix some time ago got it sorted but apparently not. Anyway I've made some further changes which as far as I can tell sorts the issue... let me know if it still happens...
Paul.
