    Solid.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Tippet is tippet, but I prefer Rio to other brands I've tried. The spools lock together tighter and easier than other brands, and they're slightly larger than some, which makes them easier to deal with when you're wobbling in the current.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Have fished Orvis tippet, Trout Hunter Tippet, Scientific Angler Tippet, and Umpqua Tippet and yet I still reside with Rio Tippets.



    I use the mono powerflex tippet from Rio mainly as a leader extender and replacer. Also I tend to use it mainly on all of my hopper rigs as Mono tends to float a bit better than Fluoro does. I am also never worried about spooking fish if I am slapping some hoppers on the water and this is always a great choice.



    Also 4x and 5x from Rio has landed me and my clients some surprisingly large fish based on the size we were using. For example this Rainbow a client caught on 5x....

    Great Stuff, Simple as That

      Love this tippet, it's all I use anymore. i made the switch from Orvis tippet because I did not like how it was a green color. This tippet makes great knots and holds its strength very well. I have had spools of this tippet lying around for 2 years or so and never noticed any degradation, anything past that I cannot comment on although I believe it would be just fine. Overall a great choice in tippet.

      Simple, but quality

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      After a little bit of experimentation with different manufacturers, I really like this stuff. It is inexpensive but packs a high quality. The spools easily connect to each other making it nice and neat when throwing it in a bag or even on a bar. It holds up really well in all kinds of conditions and I have nothing but good things to say about this product.

      All about that X.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Fantastic stuff, inexpensive, great for rigging up droppers, nymph rigs, or adding length to your tapered leader for delicate presentations, I have 4, 5 and 6x with me at all times on the water.

      Here's a tip. Use it.

      • 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.

      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

      • 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:
