October 3, 2012 (Idaho Falls, Idaho) – RIO Products, manufacturer of fly lines, leaders and tippet material, is proud to introduce an easy-casting, super-versatile interchangeable tip fly line called the VersiTip II.
The new VersiTip II has a short, powerful, front-loaded head for long, effortless distance casts and every line comes supplied with four, 15-foot interchangeable tips – each built with bullet-proof, slim welded loops on both ends for the fastest in rigging.
The four included 15 ft tips are a floating tip, a clear intermediate tip with a sink rate of 1.5 – 2 inches per second (ips), a density compensated, Type 3 Sink tip with a sink rate of 3-4ips, and a density compensated Type 6 Sink tip with a sink rate of 6-7ips. The rapid changing nature of the VersiTip II fly line allows anglers to switch tips as fishing and water conditions change.
A unique mending and handling section at the back end of the head enables anglers to mend effectively and control the way the fly fishes at long ranges, while DualTone, RIO’s unique fly line feature, shows anglers where the line loads a fly rod most effectively.
The VersiTip II is made on a supple multifilament braided core and is built with a coldwater coating to ensure there is no tangling when pulled off the reel. In addition, the VersiTip II is manufactured with RIO’s AgentX and Extreme Slickness technologies for the ultimate in slickness, shootability and distance.
VersiTip II lines are available from WF5-WF10 at all RIO dealers and have a MSRP of $159.95.
