May 1, 2013 (Idaho Falls, Idaho) – RIO Products, manufacturer of fly lines, leaders and tippet material, announces the addition of four new tippet materials to its comprehensive range.
Fluoroflex® Freshwater is a medium-stiff tippet made with pure fluorocarbon; ideal for salmon, steelhead, bass, and for throwing larger flies at freshwater species. It is also extremely abrasion resistant and a great choice when a tough material is required. Being fluorocarbon, Fluoroflex Freshwater tippet material has a light refraction index very close to water, which results in an almost invisible tippet when under water. It is available from 7x-0x at a retail price of $12.95 and in 16-pound and 20-pound spools for $17.95 from any authorized RIO dealer.
The new Fluoroflex Saltwater Tippet is also 100 percent fluorocarbon, highly abrasion resistant and medium-stiff in nature. It is a fantastic choice of tippet material for casting on windy days with large saltwater fly patterns and great on clear flats when targeting spooky fish. Fluoroflex Saltwater is available in 8, 10, 12, 16, 20 and 25-pound spools for $17.95 and 30, 35, 40, 50, 60, 80 and 100-pound for $24.95.
Another new addition for anglers chasing bonefish, redfish, stripers, coastal salmon, and sea-runs is the new RIO Saltwater Tippet. The medium-stiff nylon tippet is ideal for casting typical saltwater flies in windy conditions combining high knot strength and great abrasion resistance. The Saltwater Tippet is available in 8, 10, 12, 16, 20, 25, and 30-pound spools for a retail price of $4.95.
RIO’s new Steelhead/Salmon Tippet is soft enough to let a waking dry wobble and dance yet stiff enough to turn over big Intruders. The medium-stiff tippet has great knot strength and is available in 8, 10, 12, 16 and 20-pound spools and retails for $4.95.
