In this category you will find all of the most popular Rio leaders and tippet material. Rio is a premium brand, made this only the finest material and extrusion process with consistent quality control. When anglers switch to Rio, they stay with Rio.
Rio was founded in 1990 by Jim and Kitty Vincent. Rio is now owned by Far Bank, the company that also owns Sage and Redington. We started selling their leaders and tippet in 1995 or 1996, we canít remember exactly. Letís just say, it was a long time ago. We always liked the supple but strong tippet. It worked well in the Smoky Mountains and everywhere else for that matter. Powerflex Trout Leaders have been a popular and great selling product for us.
Then came Fluoroflex, fluorocarbon leaders and tippet. The tailwater anglers love this material, when fishing with tiny midges in clear water. Rio uses pure 100% fluorocarbon, not a blend. Fluoroflex provides stealth and abrasion resistance. It sinks fairly fast too.
Suppleflex is what it sounds like, very supple leader and tippet material, for light presentation, and great knot strength.
Powerflex Plus is new for the 2016 fishing season. It is available in tapered leaders and tippet material. Look at the specifications. This stuff is strong. Really strong. Give Power Plus a try.
