My favorite tippet
Reviewer: A viewer from CARLSBAD, NM USA
Most certainly my favorite tippet so far. Other tippets may be slightly more supple but, this seems to be the strongest and yield the most protection from knicks. The spools also roll smoothly and the line holding bands hold tight but, allow the tippet to roll off easy. This is definitely my choice for tippet from now on.
Very strong and tough leader material
Reviewer: A viewer from Valparaiso, IN US
I fish lakes for sunfish and bass, Great Lake streams for steelhead and salmon.
This Rio material is my favorite for 3x or lighter leaders. Very tough and does not kink up.
I prefer Maxima for 2x and larger leaders.
Good looking but not very strong
Reviewer: A viewer from Soria, Soria / Spain ES
I have been using this product during last six months. The tippet its really good looking on water and it makes great fly presentations. The results are good with medium trouts. But it has a little problem: The knot breaks easily and you must be very carefull with branches or heavy trouts, at least in 4x, 5x and 6x. If you avoid most of knots from line to line (for example with conection rings) the results are better, but the last knot, with the fly, its... too sensitive for a 'semifool' fisher like me, you know :)
Rio powerflex tippet
Reviewer: A viewer from Holland, MI US
This tippet is great. I've tried many other brands and i believe that this is the best mono tippet for the price. It has great flexibility, suppleness, stiffness and strength. I remember once when i got my fly caught on a log while fishing a small stream, i pulled the fly and tried to break the line. I expected to break my line but my fly shot back at me and I had actually broken the hook. The brand was a very popular company and ya it was probably a defective hook but regardless, i was amazed at the strength of the tippet. Try some.
