    Industry Standard

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I look no further than RIO whenever I need new tippet. This stuff always works flawlessly, as long as my knots do!
    For the trout guys, pick some up in 5x, 6x, and 7x and be covered for all situations!

    Can't Go Wrong

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I pair RIO Powerflex tippet with RIO leaders and the fish can't stay off. I've always preferred RIO over Umpqua or Orvis. I like Powerflex for dries, and I step up to fluoroflex when nymphing or throwing streamers

    Wonderful product RIO!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Love this Tippet! If I am building a leader or simply replacing the tippet end of the line this is my go to. Incredibly strong, supple and responsive. I have it in 3,4,5, & 6X.

    Does the job!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I"ve Caught several fish with this tippet.0x-6x I use it while dry flying or just nypming and it works. It holds knots very well, haven't had any issues with powerflex so i'll continue using it.

    Does the job.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Doesn't last as long as fluoro, but nylon gets the job done at about half the price. I prefer the rio tippet spools as they lock together well and they don't unspool easily thanks to the elastic cover.


    • 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....
