These tips are 15 feet long, and have a steady front taper of about 3 feet, which allows for good presentation of a fly. Each tip has a color coded loop at the rear, and is printed with the tip size - attach the printed end to the fly line. The tips are built on RIO's ultra-low stretch ConnectCore for the maximum in sensitivity and performance, and are density compensated at the front end (not the intermediate) for the best fishing performance. 

  • Density Compensation: The majority of modern fly lines feature a taper at the front end, which ensures that they cast smoothly and land on the water without too much impact. With sinking lines and sink tips, this taper creates a small problem; as the line gets thinner the amount of coating on it gets less.

    The coating is what makes a fly line sink, so as the coating is reduced, the sink rate slows down. Usually this means a tapered sinking line sinks in a curve - with the thicker, heavier and denser body section sinking faster than the tip - not good for controlling the depth, and especially not good for detecting atake, or setting the hook. RIO's Density Compensation adds a more dense material to the thin tip, which ensures the line sinks straight - better for knowing when a fish takes the fly, and far better for setting the hook. All RIO's premium tapered sinking lines and sink tips are Density Compensated.

  • Easy ID Loops: Easy ID loops are neat, printed loops that show the size and type of the shooting head
  • Back Welded Loop: A neat, bullet-proof welded loop on the rear end for fast rigging
  • Front Welded Loop: A neat, bullet-proof welded loop on the front end for fast rigging
  • Total Length: 15'/4.6m
  • Body Length: 12'
There are five density options available:
  • Floating: (straw color, 7wt to 10wt)
  • Intermediate: 1.5-2 ips (gray color with gray loop, 6wt to 10wt)
  • Sink 3: 3-4 ips (brown color with yellow loop, 6wt to 10wt)
  • Sink 6: 6-7 ips (black color with gray loop, 6wt to 10wt)
  • Sink 8: 8-9 ips (black color with green loop, 8wt to 10wt)
 
Each tip has the following weight:
 
#6 - 84 grains
#7 - 95 grains
#8 - 109 grains
#9 - 129 grains
