Description

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.

There are four different density options available that ensures any angler fishing the flats is covered for all conditions and species. The options available are:
F – A full floating line
F/I StealthTip – A full floating line with a 6ft clear intermediate tip - essentially a floating line with a really short, clear tip for the ultimate in stealth.
F/I – A floating line with a 15ft clear intermediate tip – perfect for getting the fly down in deeper flats
I – A full intermediate sinking tropical saltwater line

The core strength of this line is as follows:
WF6 - WF7 = 30lb (13.6kg)
WF8 - WF9 = 45lb (20.4kg)
WF10 - WF12 = 60lb (27.2kg)

TECHNOLOGIES

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

FEATURES

SUREFIRE
RIO’s triple color line marking system that makes it easy to gauge distances and load, with a quick glance.

EASYID
RIO’s printed line marking system that allows anglers to quickly and easily identify each line.

FRONT WELDED LOOP
A neat, bulletproof loop welded at the front of the fly line for fast Spey-specific rigging.

BACK WELDED LOOP
A neat, bulletproof loop welded at the end of the fly line for fast rigging to backing.
