DetailsThe Gripshooter is a hybrid of a standard fly line type running line and the far shooting, yet awkward to handle at times nylon alternative. This unique new shooting line from RIO, combines the best of both worlds, without any of the disadvantages.
Based on the slim nylon SlickShooter, but with a thick, coated handling section similar to a fly line that makes it very easy to grip in cold conditions. The thin nylon shooting line gives casters maximum distance, is light enough to hold off the water at range and allows anglers great control of their head and fly far out in the swing.
Another winning advantage is that the fly line style front end section allows RIO to fit a neat little 8 inch welded loop, removing the concern of how to join your nylon running line to the shooting head.
Available in 3 different breaking strains:
25lb in Blue/Hot Orange colour
35lb in Green/Orange colour
44lb in Red/Orange colour
50lb in Yellow/Orange colour
Thick, highly visible handling section for grip, durability and visibility

- This is my second Gripshooter shooting line, I'm a big fan of the way the combine an easy-to-handle front section and thin, memory-free nylon. Greater distance is more easily achieved than with a coated running line and, unlike some mono shooting-lines, there is no worry about coils getting tangled. Review by James (Created 03/05/2018)
Further to my earlier comments, I've now fished with this four times. It is absolutely brilliant! Really slick with low "hold" in the water. Adds yards I agree. But also low risk of tangles - very few despite deep wading. A bit awkward, knots get small and tight easily, need a bit of effort to undo them. But overall a superb product and really much better than the line I replaced.

- Product is interesting. I had thought I was ordering the Connectcore (I think!) that I've had before. But the slick surface of this line is very nice, and I suspect it'll be more tangle free, as it's a little stiffer. And with the grippy bit at the front, it shouldn't shoot through my fingers on the cast - except when I let go! Review by Phil (Created 11/12/2016)
...shooting line I ever have cast.

- Excellent product. Really slick, adds yards to your cast but needs stretching regularly to avoid tangles Review by Jimbospey (Created 08/09/2015)
