What’s most tangible about RIO’s SlickCast lines is just how slick they are. You’ll feel the slickness before you even have a chance to spool it up, you’ll love the slickness on your first cast, and you’ll be stunned by the slickness after countless days on the water. Whether it’s the extra distance that comes with ease, or the extended drag-free drifts, SlickCast lines slip effortlessly through your rod guides. And, as essential slickening agents constantly migrate to the exterior surface, you can trust your SlickCast line to be as slick next season as the day you bought it.
What isn’t tangible about RIO’s SlickCast is the durability. You certainly won’t appreciate it on Day 1…you’ll be too busy drooling over your casts. You’ll start to recognize it on Day 25, you’ll appreciate it on Day 50, and you’ll be blown away by it on Day 80. SlickCast’s proprietary formulation is off the charts when tested for abrasion and cracking resistance—producing the toughest, most durable fly line coating in the world. You can count on your SlickCast line to outlast every other fly line you have ever fished.
Lasts 140% longer than our nearest competitor
RIO’s SlickCast creates the slickest, most durable coating on the market - producing the least amount of friction ever measured on a fly line. What does slick get you? For starters, line flies through the guides with higher line speeds for unprecedented and easy distance. The slick coating also allows anglers to fish more effectively as line slides out of the guides with less friction for extended drag-free drifts.
Additionally, SlickCast continuously releases essential slickening agents that migrate to the line’s surface. This ensures that the line remains as slick as the day it was made - giving anglers many years of high performance and easy distance.
As for durability, SlickCast’s proprietary formulation produces the toughest and most durable fly line coating in the world. Lab tests show that a line built with SlickCast lasts 140% longer than our nearest competitor in abrasion testing and lasts 33% longer when testing a fly line for cracking - that is one tough fly line!
