I haven't tried the Airflo running line yet (plan to soon); but I also like the Rio coated shooting lines very much. I use them all the time. They wear well and handle brilliantly. I like them best in the intermediate density in both .024 and .030 diameter. I still use Amnesia mono shooting line but also like the 30-pound Suffix Elite - both types in the hi-vis colors.

Which type of shooting line I use depends upon conditions/water types. I like mono for light rods fishing for panfish to trout in still water; mono for swinging for shad and steelhead/salmon. I prefer the coated shooting lines for casting heavier heads like T-14 and T-11 using larger flies for stripers and similar species.
