Here's what others have to say...

Built for the fight.

Built for the fight.

Landed this 4lb bow on a sz2 streamer on 2x Powerflex. It ran my tippet over rocks and through a log jam before it tuckered out.

Here's a tip. Use it.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Until I was introduced to Rio I'd been using Orvis exclusively (I'm a big fan of their rods). I've found Rio to be just as strong, abrasion resistant, but exhibiting less memory than Orvis' tippet. Also Rio spools are thinner taking up less room on my tippet holder. I'm still working through my Orvis tippet and will most likely use Rio exclusively from here on out.

Doesn't hurt to buy a couple of each to keep in the garage just in case the fly shop is closed when you go out.

Here's a tip. Use it.


This works great. Although, I like scientific anglers more because you can snap multiple tippet reals together.

Your gunna need some

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Many friends who have been fishing way longer than I recommended rio line, tippet and leader to me. I have been pleased. Strong, cheapish, works. Have 1x-6x, you will need to extend life/ rebuild leader.

Works well!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Strong and comes in the proper size for the trout I am looking for! I have the 3x and 5x. The trout are biting so they must not be able to see my line, sweet! Just attach to a leader by using a simple Surgeon's knot and you are ready to cast!

"go to" tippet

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This tippet is all you need! It has yet to fail me and is super strong. It sits on the water well and is virtually invisible to fish. Weights 3-6 have proven to work well and I highly recommend this tippet! Threw them all on this guy:

Holds up great and looks good on the water. Best abrasion resistance at a good price.
