Specification

The very best all-around flats line, and perfect for multiple destinations, species and water types.

Conquer the flats with RIO’s Flats Pro tropical saltwater line. This line has a mid length head and long back taper for smooth, effortless loops, and a weight distribution that provide perfect presentations of just about any fly you are likely to use. Each line is built on RIO’s low-memory DirectCore that is extremely easy to anneal (stretch) and lies perfectly straight on the water, yet retains the stiffness needed to cast in hot conditions. In addition the line is built with SlickCast—the slickest, most durable coating on the market. DirectCore is RIO’s low-stretch core used in tropical lines.

DirectCore stretches 30% less than other tropical cores, is exceptionally easy to pull coils out of, and lies exceptionally straight on the water.

SlickCast creates the slickest, most durable coating on the market – producing the least amount of friction ever measured on a fly line.

  • Low stretch & low-memory DirectCore lays straight on the water and results in hard positive hook sets
  • Built with SlickCast, the world’s slickest and most durable coating
  • Mid head length & long rear taper for perfect control
  • Extreme Slickness with front and back loops and ID marking 2 Options: Floating or Stealth Tip (6ft foot clear intermediate tip)
