RIO’s Tarpon line has a mid-length head, and a short, powerful front taper to easily cast typical Tarpon flies with ease. The rear weight distribution easily loads powerful saltwater fly rods and ensures the very best in presentation so as not to spook wary poons, making it the ideal all-round Tarpon line.
The line is built on tough, medium-stiff saltwater cores that will not wilt in the heat, and features a high-floating, AgentX coating for the very best in performance. The front and back loops allow for easy and fast rigging.
The lines have the following breaking strengths:
- WF10 – 40lb
- WF11 – 50lb
- WF12 – 50lb
Dual Tone Technology
This system marks the sweet spot of a fly line by providing an obvious color change in the line. RIO tests every line model and size on a selection of fly rods to find the best spot where the rod loads, and the color change starts at that point. With this Dual Tone system, it’s so 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.
