Ultra-Strong, 100% Fluorocarbon With Exceptionally High Tensile Strength, And Exceptionally Easy To Tie Knots In.
RIO’s newest tippet material is an ultra-strong, 100% fluorocarbon with exceptionally high tensile strength. The material is very easy to tie knots in, with high knot strength and a smooth finish that ensures knots seat easily and tightly. The high break strength to diameter ratio makes this a fantastic fluorocarbon for the trout fly fisher. RIO is proud to introduce “half sizes” of core trout diameters, giving anglers an extra choice when faced with the decision to choose between, say 4X and 5X. Our new 6.5X, 5.5X and 4.5X sizes will make those decisions easier. Each spool has 30 yards of top quality material spooled on, though for those who use a lot of fluoro, our Guide spools each have 100 yards spooled on.
Relatively new Fluoroflex Strong is a serious improvement over the RIO Standard Fluoro. Love the 1/2 sizes and 5.5X is just the stuff for days where 6x is just too light. It's the prefect presentation for me for the light and tiny flies but when prospecting for the bigger catches. There are a lot of choices for tippet. The reconstructed material is smoother than it's predecessor, stronger too!
