A full range of densities make this a very versatile line series. Each line features RIO's XS technology for super slick performance, and is built with a supple, coldwater coating that ensures the line remains tangle-free.

Customer Reviews

Outstanding Line Review by Cajun Flyfisher
The Outbound Short is a great line: smooth casting, floats well, and provides great distance without false casting.. I tested it with an eight-inch homemade popper made with a large plastic/foam wine cork and eight saddle hackles and another eight-inch one made with a very heavy dressing of Steve Farrar's Flash Blend. This second popper is like casting a pillow! I could easily cast 70 feet with the first popper with only a single haul and 55 feet with the second, again with a single haul. I just purchased some Bob Clouser Big Fish Terminators and will test the line with them as well--then get back to you. But even without further testing, I highly recommend this line.
