RIO Saltwater Fly Line
The all-purpose saltwater line for Bonefish, Redfish, Stripers and Sea Trout. Based on the QuickShooter II taper that will turn over big flies into any wind. This line is made on a braided multifilament core for suppleness and has a hard AgentX saltwater coating that ensures the running line floats. RIO’s new XS Technology ensures the slickest of finishes and ultimate in distance casts. Ideal for fishing in cooler conditions along the coast it includes welded loops on both ends for easy rigging. The coral colour is easy to see even in low light conditions
Length: 30,5 m
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.
