RIO Grand DualTone Fly Line
The RIO Grand is one half size heavier than the AFTMA standard and features more weight distributed towards the front of the line to easily load fast action fly rods. The line has a short head that is easy to cast, making it the perfect choice for fast action rods, or for more novice casters that like a little extra load to help them with the cast.
colour: pale green/lt. yellow

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.
MaxCast is a ultra-sophisticated line coating, made with a groundbreaking proprietary formula. It redefines floating line performance. MaxCast lines float higher, shoot farther, last longer and stay cleaner.
Max Float Tip
Tired of floating lines that work like Sink Tips? Fact is, the reduced coating at the narrow, tapered end of most floating lines doesn’t have enough buoyancy to stay above water. RIO’s MaxFloat Tips solves this age-old problem. Our all-new, proprietary tip coating formula floats more than twice as high as regular line tips, without any increase in diameter. That puts maximum floatation right where you need it for reduced drag, longer presentations and quieter pickups.
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.
