RIO Avid Trout WF Fly Line
An all-purpose trout line with an easy casting taper. The supple, self-lubricating coating is incredibly slick and features AgentX technology for that little bit of extra distance. The front-loaded taper casts all fly sizes with ease and delivers excellent turnover and presentation. The line is slightly heavier than the AFTMA standard and allows casters to feel the rod load – especially useful on modern, faster action rods. A welded loop on the front end allows for easy rigging.
colour: pale yellow
length: 24.4 m (#3 - #4) / 27.4 m (#5 - #8)
The Avid is the lowest priced RIO Line, which is equipped with the AgentX und XS-Technology.
Traditionally, getting a fly line to float has required mixing tiny glass balls (called microspheres) into the lines coating. After years of experimentation RIO have developed a unique element which is six times more buoyant than those used by other fly line manufacturers. This process is called „Fusion Technology”. By simultaneously processing this super-buoyant undercoating with an ultra-smooth outer coating the results are the smoothest, most durable and highest floating fly lines imaginable.
XS (Extreme Slickness)
The RIO test laboratories carried out extensive practical experiments and material combinations, until they discovered the secret behind the XS Technology. The result is a generation of fly lines with a slicker surface. On the water this leads to longer and more accurate casts, less abrasion, less dirt attraction and an overall better performance.
RIO pioneered / originated the innovative welded loop technique. Welded loop fly line tips float better and enable a rapid change of leader. Almost all RIO fly lines are supplied with these small welded loops, please see the appropriate line diagram for information.
