Rio Outbound Floating Fly Line
With the Rio Outbound Fly Line, the average freshwater caster can launch casts far, far away to the previously unreachable. The Outbound is designed to load high performance rods quickly with a few false casts because the 37.5 foot head is heavier than the AFTMA standards. The supple coldwater core and XS technology coating, combined with a taper design unique to each model, plus a tangle-free running line, ensure the longest flight time for unearthly casts. This Outbound is a floating line made for water temperatures in the 50 degree to 80 degree range. This line has a yellow head and a green running line.
XS Technology - XS (Extreme Slickness) Technology began when RIO's chemists began reformulating conventional chemical combinations. Although RIO's formulas were great, our 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, (say that 10 times fast) 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.
DualTone - DualTone is a system perfected by RIO that marks the sweet spot of a fly line by providing an obvious color change in the line. The design of every fly line taper, its most likely application and each individual line size is carefully taken into account, and the location of the color change is unique to each fly line. Every line model and size is tested on a selection of fly rods to find the ideal place where the rod loads, and the color change starts at that point. With the DualTone system it is easy to see how much line to strip in, where to pick up a cast, how much line can be held in the air when false casting, and when to make the final cast.
