Details

The ultimate range of sink tip lines for throwing streamers, with ultra-low stretch performance.


A series of lines with short, 10 ft sinking tips, specifically built for fly fishers that like to fish streamers out of a boat. A short, heavy head loads rods at close range, allowing anglers to make fast, one-shot casts. An aggressive, powerful front taper casts large conehead muddlers and bunny leech rigs with ease, while a welded loop on the front end allow anglers to change rigs quickly. Built with RIO’s ultra-low stretch ConnectCore Technology and a supple coldwater coating, this line will not tangle off the reel.

Two different tip densities are available; the F/I has an intermediate tip that sinks about 1.5in per second, and is great for throwing streamers to the bank. The fast sinking type 6 tip sinks about 6in per second and is ideal when fast depth is required.

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.

Front Loop

A neat, bullet-proof welded loop on the front end for fast rigging.

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.
