New Products: RIO's New Bonefish Line

RIO‘s reformulated Bonefish fly line is catching a lot of attention for its unique taper design, high-tech coatings, and contrasting head- and running-line colors. MidCurrent gave it our “Best of Show” award for 2009 products, and we learned yesterday that American Angler magazine gave it their “Gear of the Year” award. RIO’s new bonefish lines are available in sizes WF6F to WF9F and cost $74.95.
As RIO says in a new press release: “RIO’s new bonefish fly line features a unique taper design that allows a rod to load at close range, a medium-length front taper for great turnover and a long back taper to smooth out the casting loop and keep the line stable on long shots. A hard, saltwater coating over a medium stiff core results in a fly line that will not wilt in most tropical conditions, while RIO’s dirt-repelling XS Technology keeps the line ultra slick for fast, long casts.”

RIO Products introduces a stunning new Bonefish line
IDAHO FALLS, October 1st, 2008 – After two years of testing cores, coatings, tapers and color combinations RIO is proud to announce the launch of the very latest in bonefish fly lines. RIO’s new bonefish fly line features a unique taper design that allows a rod to load at close range, a medium-length front taper for great turnover and a long back taper to smooth out the casting loop and keep the line stable on long shots. A hard, saltwater coating over a medium stiff core results in a fly line that will not wilt in most tropical conditions, while RIO’s dirt-repelling XS Technology keeps the line ultra slick for fast, long casts.
The line is also manufactured with RIO’s patent pending AgentX undercoat that produces a high floating line that is easy and quiet to pick up off the water, and unlike standard saltwater lines, ensures the running line will not sink and tangle while wading. The line’s taper and final design is a direct result of RIO’s commitment to the most involved and dedicated product testing. All possible core permutations were meticulously tested; each taper tweaked and perfected; every color viewed in a multitude of locations and light conditions: The end result is the finest bonefish fly line on the market.
The head of the line is a light sand color that is incredibly easy to see in all light conditions, while the contrasting dusty blue running line makes it easy to find the line’s perfect loading point. A welded loop at both ends is included for easy rigging.
RIO’s new bonefish lines are available in sizes WF6F to WF9F and are available from all authorized RIO dealers. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $74.95.
