New for 2010 - Extreme Distance
For two years the line designers and technical engineers at RIO have been working on the ultimate long distance casting line. The end result is the new RIO Gold Tournament line - a line that is built for casting huge distances and for competing in the #5 casting competitions around the world.
The line conforms to AFTMA and competition specifications and is deemed legal for standard WF5 floating line distance competitions. It features a long head of 75 ft with a graduated rear body taper that gives the line longer flight times and more distance than any other line out there. The ultra thin running line (0.024" diameter) produces virtually no drag.
This line is not recommended as a fishing line as it has a fairly light breaking strength core and a low floating density coiating - all of which are supreme distance attributes, but affect the fishing performance.
This line is not listed in the RIO catalog, but is available from all RIO authorized dealers and distributors.
