The RIO Gold is the ultimate all-round floating line for freshwater fly fishing.
- Revolutionary design that allows for incredible loop stability at distance
- Unique taper that allows a rod to load at close range
- Perfect presentation of flies between #22 and #2
RIO’s new, innovative MaxCast line coating redefines floating line performance. Made with a groundbreaking proprietary formula, MaxCast lines float higher, shoot farther, last longer and stay cleaner. The secret is in the coating’s advanced hydrophobic chemistry that actively pushes water away from the line, resulting in radically improved floatation and reduced dirt adhesion. It also allows the line to slip more easily from the surface film for longer, quieter pickups. At the same time, MaxCast’s coating formulation contains a sophisticated blend of permanent slickening agents that continuously migrate to the line’s exterior for enhanced shooting and durability.
The addition of RIO’s new MaxFloat Tip technology allows the tips of these lines to float more than twice as high as regular line tips without an increase in diameter. The tip of a traditional floating line tends to sink because its narrow, tapered end has a reduced coating that does not provide enough buoyancy to stay above water. RIO’s MaxFloat Tip solves this age-old problem by placing maximum floatation right where anglers need it for reduced drag, longer drifts and quieter pickups.
