Rio Powerflex Tippet


A high tenacity copolymer with excellent knot strength, abrasion-resistance, stretch and suppleness. Sometimes called double strength nylon. Used for all species, the light gray provides superb camouflage in any sub-aquatic environment. Powerflex has the perfect combination of elongation and tenacity, and we will match it against any competing brand any time.

Details "Use Rio Power Flex for floating presentations"

Rio's product description is right on, and I completely agree with the previous review for dry fly presentations. For lake fishing, I recommend tying a 6' section Rio Powerflex Tippet from the end of your fly line to an indicator fly and suspending a chironomid pupa with Rio Flouroflex Plus.

Details "Great for dries"

I use this in 4X-6X for fishing dries. Knots easy and doesn't sink like fluoro. I get these in the 30 yard lengths and is cheap enough to replace every year. I only use Rio tippet.
