RIO Density Compensation Technology

RIO Density Compensation Technology. The majority of modern fly lines feature a taper at the front end. This ensures they cast smoothly and land on the water without too much impact. With sinking lines and sink tips, this taper creates a small problem; as the line gets thinner the amount of coating on it gets less.

The line coating is what makes a fly line sink. So as the coating is reduced, the sink rate slows down. Usually this means a tapered sinking line sinks in a curve – with the thicker, heavier and denser body section sinking faster than the tip – not good for controlling the depth and especially not good for detecting a take, or setting the hook. RIO’s Density Compensation adds a more dense material to the thin tip, which ensures the line sinks straight – better for fishers to know when a fish takes the fly and far better for setting the hook.

All RIO’s premium tapered sinking lines and sink tips are Density Compensated.

RIO Extreme Slickness Technology

RIO Extreme Slickness Technology. Every fly fisherman is looking for a slicker line and for good reason. Slicker line means longer casts, which is something all anglers strive to achieve. XS Technology is the latest development from RIO’s lab coats that focuses on creating an ultra slick line with dirt-repelling tendencies.

XS (Extreme Slickness) Technology began when RIO’s chemists began reformulating conventional chemical combinations. Although RIO’s formulas were great, their scientists are fly fishers and by definition, they want an even slicker fly line – it’s just part of the deal. So first, they tackled the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) coating and through intense scrutiny down to the polymeric mix level, they defined some fundamental limitations. Out went the old PVC/silicone formulas and by methodically adding a little more of this, a little less of that, and a pinch of secret sauce, the lab coats cooked up a completely new and improved recipe.

With XS Technology, RIO has developed a fly line that is slicker, more stable, far less apt to attract dirt and paired with AgentX Technology, it engineers a line that is less dense, casts further and more accurately, floats higher, lasts longer, and offers more consistent performance cast after cast, strike after strike, fish after fish.
