15ft replacement tips for VersiTip and Skagit lines. 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.
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
