  • Ultra-low Stretch ConnectCore Technology for Maximum Performance 

  • Front Biased Weight to Load Rods at Close Range

  • Density Compensation on Sinking Head

RIO’s InTouch Striper 30ft Sink Tip line is an easy casting, fast-sinking line that is built on RIO's ultra-low stretch ConnectCore for the maximum in performance. The line has a fast sinking head of 30ft, seamlessly integrated to an intermediate running line, and is built on a supple, coldwater core that has no "memory" and will not tangle. 

A short, powerful head of 30ft, and an aggressive front taper makes it easy to cast Clousers, Deceivers, and other typical striper flies. In addition the line has welded loops on both ends of all lines  for fast rigging
The core strength of these lines is 30lb.
The lines are sold in "grain" weights, and RIO recommends the following conversion to appropriate rod sizes:
    • 250gr = 7wt
    • 300gr = 8wt
    • 350gr = 9wt
    • 400gr = 10wt
    • 450gr = 11wt
  • ConnectCore: When you rely on touch to know what’s going on in the depths, line stretch is the enemy. Rio's ConnectCore lines open up new worlds of perception and sensitivity with ultra-low stretch performance. Soft, subtle takes become positive grabs, and without stretch to dull reaction times, hook sets are instant and sure. ConnectCore. The secret weapon for success.
  • Extreme Slickness: Every fly fisher is looking for a slicker line, and for good reason. Slicker line means longer casts, which is something all anglers strive to achieve. XS Technology is the latest development from RIO's lab coats that focuses on creating an ultra slick line, with dirt-repelling tendencies. XS (Extreme Slickness) Technology began when RIO's chemists began reformulating conventional chemical combinations. Although RIO's formulas were great, RIO scientists are fly fishers, and by definition they want an even slicker fly line - it's just part of the deal. So first, they tackled the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) coating and through intense scrutiny down to the polymeric mix level, (say that 10 times fast) they defined some fundamental limitations. Out went the old PVC/silicone formulas and by methodically adding a little more of this, a little less of that, and a pinch of secret sauce, the lab coats cooked up a completely new and improved recipe. With XS Technology, RIO has developed a fly line that is slicker, more stable, and far less apt to attract dirt, and paired with AgentX Technology, it engineers a line that is less dense, casts further and more accurately, floats higher, lasts longer, and offers more consistent performance cast after cast, strike after strike, fish after fish.
  • 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.


  • Front and Back Welded Loops: Neat, bullet-proof welded loops on both ends for fast rigging.
