The InTouch RIO Grand is a full line size heavier than the industry standard, and features more weight distributed towards the front of the line to easily load faster action fly rods – making it the best choice of line for fast action fly rods, or for more novice casters that like a little extra load to help them with the cast.
The ultra-low stretch ConnectCore provides ground breaking levels of sensitivity for intuitively better cast timing, easier line lift and sharp, precise mends, Lack of stretch also means enhanced detection of subtle takes, faster reaction time when setting the hook and better control of a fish during the fight.
The line also features RIO’s unique three color “SureFire” color system that improves accuracy and makes it easy to gauge exact distances at a glance. In addition, RIO’s “MaxCast” Technology actively repels water for higher flotation, longer casts and greater durability, while RIO’s “MaxFloat” Tip, keeps the line tip floating high on the water and puts an end to annoying sunken line tips.
ConnectCore is RIO’s ultra-low stretch core (maximum 6%) used in coldwater fly lines that provides incredibly sensitivity and control when casting and fishing.
MaxCast is a hydrophobic coating that repels water, ensuring lines float higher, shoot farther, stay cleaner, and last longer.
AgentX is a dual layered fly line that utilizes a high floating inner coating made with more buoyant microspheres covered by a tough outer coating for maximum durability.
MaxFloat Tip technology is a high float coating that floats more than twice as high as regular fly line tips, without any increase in diameter.
SUREFIRE – RIO’s triple color line marking system that makes it easy to gauge distances and load, with a quick glance.
EASYID – RIO’s printed line marking system that allows anglers to quickly and easily identify each line.
FRONT WELDED LOOP – A neat, bulletproof loop welded at the front of the fly line for fast rigging to a leader.
BACK WELDED LOOP – A neat, bulletproof loop welded at the end of the fly line for fast rigging to backing.
