Rio's Powerflex runninglines have been the first choice of many two-handed anglers for years. Whether for Scandi- or Skagit-style shooting heads, those looking for a high-performance, coated running line will find the new Premier Powerflex Ultra an excellent, long-lasting solution that is not only totally reliable, but sure to take your casting to the next level.
The special feature of the new Powerflex Ultra Shooting Line is the combination of a very hard, robust and smooth coating with a medium-soft Powerflex core, which provides both excellent breaking strain and perfect smoothness when shooting. The smooth SlickCast coating glides through the guides practically by itself and allows you to cast even further distances. The ultra-smooth coating also adds durability and preventing unwanted drag on the water. Another advantage of this special combination of coating and core: No curling/twisting in cold weather and less tangling when casting. The large welded front loop allows super quick and easy changing of your shooting heads.
- Rio Technology: Slick Cast
The name says it all! With this new technology, Rio has really shaken up the fly line market. Rio itself promotes it as the smoothest coating on the market. Shootability, noise minimization and durability of the line are improved. We ourselves found the lines so smooth that we had to rein ourselves in a bit at first to avoid overshooting the metaphorical mark. So we can subscribe to Rio's claim.
