Rio Floating Fly Fishing Lines available at Traditional AnglerRio WindCutter II™ Floating Fly Lines

Rio WinCutter Floating Fly LineThis taper was designed especially for western rivers where delicate presentations are required in windy conditions. Accurate casts can be made with the WindCutter II with just the tip of the rod for a very tight loop; yet for windy conditions or when distance is needed, the thick belly will load the butt section of modern graphite rods.

The Super Floatation Tip, with a welded loop, acts as an indicator to detect subtle takes when fishing emergers subsurface. It also facilitates quick leader changes. The AgentX coating delivers smooth casts in coldwater fishing conditions, and the two-colored line shows exactly the loading point of the head.

Length: WF3F – WF5F 90 ft (27.4 m); WF6F – WF8F 100 ft (30.5 m)

Color: Yellow/Sage


Rio Windcuttter Profile

Rio Agent X TechnologyRio SFT TechnologyAgentX is a manufacturing process in which two coatings are applied to the fly line at the same time. As a result of these coatings being produced simultaneously, they fuse together in what RIO calls “Fusion Technology,” forming a seamless single coating that will never separate or break down. The advantages of Fusion Technology are vast. The “under coating” not only seals the core and covers any blemishes in the braid; it also adds a super low density proprietary coating. This under coating fuses to the outer coating, resulting in the smoothest, slickest, highest floating fly lines ever made. The combination of these processes ensures that the outer coating is perfectly centered around the core and allows for greater durability, less dirt pick up and longer casts.

To accomplish this, RIO developed a radically new chemical that gives a floating fly line a specific gravity as low as 0.65 – something unattainable with normal microspheres. This new chemical is five times lighter than the standard microspheres used in fly line manufacturing, but with much increased durability. By making the under coating with this new super floating material and the outer coating with lesser amounts of abrasive microspheres, the result is a fly line that has both a much higher buoyancy (around 0.70 specific gravity) than competitors’ fly lines (normally 0.85 to 0.90 specific gravity) and the extreme durability for which RIO fly lines are known. Using the super floatation chemical in the front four feet of a fly line, coupled with RIO’s unique welded loop (that stops water wicking up the core), RIO can now produce fly lines where the tip will never sink – an end to that age-old problem. Super Floatation Technology™ has been incorporated in many of RIO’s premier trout lines, thus enhancing better strike detection when nymphing, easier pick up of the fly line when making a cast, and avoidance of sub-surface micro drag as the tip pulls the leader tight when one is dry fly fishing.
