15ft replacement tips for VersiTip and Skagit lines.
These tips are 15ft long, and have a steady front taper of about 3ft, which allows for good presentation of a fly. Each tip has a color coded loop at the rear, and is printed with the tip size - attach the printed end to the fly line. The tips are built on RIO's ultra-low stretch ConnectCore for the maximum in sensitivity and performance, and are density compensated at the front end (not the intermediate) for the best fishing performance.
There are five density options available:
Floating: (straw color, 7wt to 10wt)
Intermediate: 1.5-2 ips (gray color with gray loop, 6wt to 10wt)
Sink 3: 3-4 ips (brown color with yellow loop, 6wt to 10wt)
Sink 6: 6-7 ips (black color with gray loop, 6wt to 10wt)
Sink 8: 8-9 ips (black color with green loop, 8wt to 10wt)
Each tip has the following weight:
#6 - 84 grains
#7 - 95 grains
#8 - 109 grains
#9 - 129 grains
#10 - 150 grains
- 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 for fast Spey-specific rigging.
- Back Welded Loop - A neat, bulletproof loop welded at the end for fast rigging to backing.
- Density Compensation - Adds a denser material to the thin tip of a sinking line (or sink tip), which ensures the line sinks straight.
