I was waiting for your thoughts and opinion on it. Those are the items I picked up on as well. The low stretch core material sounded similar to Airflo to me as well. I wonder if it's the conventional PVC their other lines seem to use or if they've gone to Polyurethane? The taper of the line seemed rather unimpressive and fairly standard to me. The price seems a bit on the high side, though I suspect they would need to offset the R&D one way or another.
