TIRED OF FLOATING LINES THAT WORK LIKE SINKTIPS?
Fact is, the reduced coating at the narrow, tapered end of most floating lines doesn’t have enough buoyancy to stay above water. RIO MaxFloat Technology solves this age-old problem. The proprietary tip coating formula floats more than twice as high as regular line tips, without any increase in diameter. That puts maximum flotation right where you need it for reduced drag, longer presentations and quieter pickups.
WHEN YOU RELY ON FEEL TO KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON, LINE STRETCH IS THE ENEMY.
The RIO ConnectCore lines open up new worlds of perception and sensitivity with ultra-low stretch performance providing a new level of feel for better, more instinctive casting, longer pick ups and more precise mends. Soft, subtle takes become positive grabs, and without stretch to dull reaction times, hook sets are immediate and sure. ConnectCore. The secret weapon for instant success.
MADE WITH A GROUNDBREAKING PROPRIETARY FORMULA, MAXCAST LINES FLOAT HIGHER, SHOOT FARTHER, LAST LONGER AND STAY CLEANER.
The secret? MaxCast’s hydrophobic chemistry, which actively pushes water away from the line, resulting in radically improved flotation and reduced dirt adhesion. It also allows the line to slip more easily from the surface film for longer, quieter pickups. At the same time, MaxCast ‘s coating formulation contains a sophisticated blend of permanent slickening agents that continuously migrate to the line’s exterior for enhanced shooting and durability.
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. This proprietary process allows RIO line designers to optimize the specific performance of each line. For example, AgentX floating lines can use an inner layer with more buoyant microspheres, while the outer layer is formulated for maximum toughness and shooting ability. AgentX means the best of both worlds in a single fly line.
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 Extreme Slickness Technology, RIO has developed a fly line that is slicker, more stable, far less apt to attract dirt, and offers more consistent performance cast after cast, strike after strike, fish after fish.
SUREFIRE is our exclusive, triple colour marking system that improves casting accuracy by making it easy to gauge exact distances with a quick glance.
DUALTONE is a system perfected by RIO that marks the sweet spot of a fly line by providing an obvious colour change in the line. With the DualTone system it is easy to see how much line to strip in, where to pick up a cast, how much line can be held in the air when false casting, and when to make the final cast.
DENSITY COMPENSATION adds a more dense material to the thin tip of a sinking line (or sink tip), which ensures the line sinks straight - better for knowing when a fish takes the fly, and far better for setting the hook.
FRONT & BACK WELDED LOOP A neat, bullet-proof welded loop on the end for fast rigging.
HANG MARKER A highly visible, short mark built into the fly line that shows anglers when the end of the sinking line is getting close during the retrieve. For anglers that fish the “hang” this is invaluable.
EASY ID LOOPS are neat, printed loops that show the size and type of the shooting head.
EASY ID TAG is a neat printed line marking system allowing you to identify your lines at a glance.
LOADING POINT An easy to see reference point that shows the most efficient loading point of the fly line.
