RIO’s new flagship saltwater fly line has been designed for anglers hitting tropical flats in search of bonefish, permit and tarpon. The line is built on RIO’s new DirectCore, a proprietary low-memory, low-stretch monofilament core that retains its stiffness in tropical heat, yet lies straight on the water without curl or retraction. The core, which has 30% less stretch than regular tropical saltwater fly lines, ensures solid strip sets and shortened fight times.
- EASY ANNEALING, LOW-MEMORY CORE THAT LAYS PERFECTLY STRAIGHT ON THE WATER
- LOW-STRETCH “DIRECTCORE” FOR HARD, SOLID STRIP SETS
- MID LENGTH HEAD & LONG REAR TAPER FOR COMPLETE LINE CONTROL
- HIGH FLOATING RUNNING LINE THAT WILL NOT SINK AND IMPEDE THE CAST
In hot, humid conditions, DirectCore lines provide the stiffness you need to fire into the wind, with significantly reduced memory.
Traditional, single-layer fly lines have to compromise between function and the need for durability and slickness. AgentX Technology makes the old compromise obsolete by bonding two separate coating layers onto one line.
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.
