NEW QUICKSHOOTER II SALTWATER FLY LINE–– RIO’S VERSATILE AND ALL PURPOSE TROPICAL SALTWATER FLY LINE
IDAHO FALLS, April 1st, 2006. RIO Products Intl., Inc. announces the introduction of the new QuickShooter™ II fly line.
The QuickShooter II is RIO’s new, improved all purpose saltwater fly line. With its compound taper design and slightly heavier head than the AFTMA standard this line is designed to load the rod quickly and deeply. The relatively short front taper aids turnover in windy conditions enhancing the line’s all ready dynamic design.
The QuickShooter II has a key lime color running line and a tan body - the color change allowing fly fishers to see precisely where the head loads the fly rod and enabling the caster to keep the line in full control while casting. The QuickShooter II is also made with the patent pending AgentX™ process - RIO’s new and highly acclaimed manufacturing technology that produces super slick and ultra high floating fly lines. This ensures that even the running line floats - a problem for some manufacturers of saltwater fly lines. This added feature is invaluable to the wading angler.
The QuickShooter II is made with a hard tropical coating over RIO’s popular Powerflex® core that will not wilt in extreme heat yet is very easy to anneal and stretch out for high performance casts. The other main difference with the new taper is a longer back taper that helps to stabilize the head for longer casts.
To assist the angler in fast and convenient leader changes and rigging, the QuickShooter II also features RIO’s unique welded loop on both ends. These loops not only allow for fast leader changes and rigging, but seal the front end and ensure that no water wicks up through the fly line core, keeping the tip floating very high for a clean, quiet pick up off the water when making the cast.
The QuickShooter II is available from RIO Authorized Dealers and has a $60 suggested retail price.
