RIO Power Fly line
The name RIO Power Fly Line says it all. This fly line was designed, from the ground up, to chuck heavy and powerful rigs. Perfect for heavy nymphing and streamer casting, this product may be the new fly line of choice for chuck-and-duck fishing. The Power Fly is sheer muscle and runs almost a full size heavier then other fly lines on the market. With an aggressive front-loaded taper, to compliment that extra weight, this is one line that won't have you worrying about coming up weak in windy conditions... RIO gave their line the moxie to turn over even the longest of leaders!
Designed with all-weather in mind, RIO has created the Power Fly in such a way as to allow the line to remain supple, even in the coldest rivers. You will also notice that, despite being supple, this fly line possesses RIO's signature slickness. Combining supple and slick qualities was made possible thanks to AgentX and XT line coating technologies. Much science has been put into this line's polymers and the result is quite impressive. Gone are the days of iron stiff line and crackly coatings. Welcome to the new age...
Durability has always been key for heavy duty chucking line, and Power Fly delivers. Featuring unusually strong front and back welded loops, RIO has made sure that their offering was made to last. Their iron-clad welding pairs nicely with the dirt and water repelling qualities of the RIO coating process, making this one of the longer lasting lines in its category.
RIO Power Fly Line also features DualTone line coloration. DualTone comes in very handy for longer lines, such as this, as it helps you in false casting by allowing you to realize how much line you have to play with and how much you need to strip in. You also have a better idea as to where your running line is.
Another neat feature RIO included in their design was Easy ID loops. Each loop actually has the size and type of shooting heads printed on them, making identification easier. The concept is simple, but you'd be shocked at how maddening it can be to find "that one" line when you've mixed up your lines.
All said, the RIO Power Fly Line is yet another winner from the guys at RIO Products. It was a pleasure to review, and we thoroughly enjoyed chucking our large nymph/indicator rigs using the Power Fly. A great choice for both trout and carp fishing. Many kudos to RIO for finally creating a highly wind resistant line for this niche. We've been waiting!
Final Score:94% A slick line for heavy nymphers and chuckers alike.
