THE VERY BEST FLATS LINE ON THE MARKET— perfect for bonefish, permit and tarpon with low stretch performance, and a 6ft clear intermediate tip.
Easy annealing, low-memory core that lays perfectly straight on the water
Low-stretch “DirectCore” for hard, solid strip sets
15ft Clear Tip for stealth (Longer clear tip than the other FlatsPro which is only a 6ft "StealthTip" in clear)
RIO’s new flagship saltwater fly line has been designed for anglers hitting tropical flats in search of bonefish, permit and tarpon. The line is built on RIO’s new DirectCore, a proprietary low-memory, low-stretch monofilament core that retains its stiffness in tropical heat, yet lies straight on the water without curl or retraction. The core, which has 30% less stretch than regular tropical saltwater fly lines, ensures solid strip sets and shortened fight times.
The new core isn’t the only technology advancement in this fly line. RIO’s SureFire technology, which has been used in their freshwater fly lines in the past, is added to the DirectCore Flats Pro line. This triple color, distance-marking design takes the guesswork out of accuracy and distance control, allowing anglers to make higher percentage shots to cruising targets.
