An incredibly sensitive shooting line with fantastic no-tangle performance - the best shooting line ever made


RIO’s ConnectCore shooting line is the very best coated shooting line on the market with tremendous assets for the Spey fly fisher. Built on an ultra-low stretch core, it allows anglers to stay perfectly in touch with their fly throughout the swing, feel every slight touch, set the hook deeply and have complete control when playing a fish. A thick, highly visible, bright orange handling section makes it easy to grip the line, and shows when to stop stripping and make the cast. The super slick XS Technology coating floats high and shoots far.

Both ends of the shooting line have large, 8" welded loops to allow anglers to easily thread through whole shooting head coils, or reels for speedy rigging. Anglers can utilize the thick handling section at the front, or keep the thinner non orange end at the front. There are 4 sizes available, with the following specs:



Technology Highlights:

Extreme Slickness

Every fly fisherman is looking for a slicker line, and for good reason. Slicker line means longer casts, which is something all anglers strive to achieve. XS Technology is the latest development from RIO’s lab coats that focuses on creating an ultra slick line, with dirt-repelling tendencies.

XS (Extreme Slickness) Technology began when RIO’s chemists began reformulating conventional chemical combinations. Although RIO’s formulas were great, our scientists are fly fishers, and by definition they want an even slicker fly line - it's just part of the deal. So first, they tackled the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) coating and through intense scrutiny down to the polymeric mix level, (say that 10 times fast) they defined some fundamental limitations. Out went the old PVC/silicone formulas and by methodically adding a little more of this, a little less of that, and a pinch of secret sauce, the lab coats cooked up a completely new and improved recipe. With XS Technology, RIO has developed a fly line that is slicker, more stable, and far less apt to attract dirt, and paired with AgentX Technology, it engineers a line that is less dense, casts further and more accurately, floats higher, lasts longer, and offers more consistent performance cast after cast, strike after strike, fish after fish.

ConnectCore

When you rely on touch to know what’s going on in the depths, line stretch is the enemy.

ConnectCore lines open up new worlds of perception and sensitivity with ultra-low stretch performance. Soft, subtle takes become positive grabs, and without stretch to dull reaction times, hook sets are instant and sure. ConnectCore. The secret weapon for success.
