RIO Elite Skagit Max Launch Fly Line

Product Code
Price from Price from £64.99

Smooth casting, powerful heads for big flies and sink tips with low stretch and ultra-slick performance.

RIO Skagit Launch heads deliver the power needed to cast large flies and sinking tips more elegantly than ever before. The unique weight distribution deeply loads rods for long, powerful casts, while the refined taper design generates incredibly smooth loops which transition seamlessly from head to tip to fly. The low stretch core gives incredible levels of sensitivity when casting and fishing, and provides enhanced detection of takes, more positive hook sets, and far greater control when playing a fish.

In addition, this line is built with SlickCast, creating the slickest, most durable coating on the market—producing the least amount of friction ever measured in a fly line.

  • Powerful front end to easily cast large flies and fast sinking tips
  • Complete series of heads with varying lengths and small size increments
  • Ultra-low stretch ConnectCore
  • Built with RIO's exceptionally slick, durable SlickCast coating
  • Easy ID
  • Front & Back Welded Loop
