What I heard...On a recent visit to an orvis dealer in spokane I was told that this tippet was the strongest in comparison to its diameter and was manufactured in the same place as orvis tippet. What I know...Either way this tippet is great. It is stiff allowing for easy knots and turnover and cheap enough to share.
I have went through many brands of tippet but three years ago I started using Rio Power Flex. Since then I have used nothing else. For its diameter its strength is comparable to some brands of flourocarbon while its ebrasion resistance is amazing. Its price is quite nice too. From Blue Gill to Steelhead and beyond its my choice for tippet.
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.
