Really Enjoy It

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I really like this Suppleflex Tippet by RIO. All of their products are 5 star in my opinion, but I think they really got it right with their Suppleflex leaders and tippets. It's not quite as clear as their Fluoroflex series, but it's crazy how much softer it is and because of this, it makes for a much better presentation when casting it. It lays and mends so nice so I specifically like it for throwing dries, but you can most definitely use it for tossing some small nymphs as well. Overall, pair it with a Suppleflex tapered leader by RIO (so you can add some onto it once the leader starts to get short on you) and you got yourself an awesome set up.

Great tippet!

Can't beat these rio tippets! They are great for all of Utah's trout fishing- I keep 0x though 7x with me whenever i'm fishing.

Pro tip - you don't need flouro for most trout situations! this suppleflex is great for almost everything and is healthier for the environment than flouro.

Rio makes awesome lines, leaders, and tippet. Get it, you will not be disappointed.

A nicer feel

    Whether it's tippet, fly line, backing or leader RIO makes the best stuff in its class.

    does the job

      as good as any other tippet i have used

      Quickly became a favorite.

        Super strong and flexible for the weight. Really does exactly what you want the line to do with less effort. Love it.

        As a novice, I tend to buy less expensive products. Then I bought this tippet and will buy this from here on out. Better presentation, better drift, better feel. Worth the upgrade.

        Sneaky Tippet

        This tippet is fantastic. No complaints at all. This is the sort of tippet you forget to think about because you never have a problem with it.

        Stepped up my game!

        This is the best tippet I've ever used really soft and supple perfect for delicate presentations when the water is slow and mirror like and only the softest presentation will do and you have to lay that fly on dime so delicately, this is the tippet for the job. Straightens out nice and I notice I never get the slightest curls in this . Really on point tippet and makes a big difference!

        I started using it this past summer when long and light presentations on skinny water was the norm. I'd been using Powerflex regularly but decided to pickup some 6x and 7x of Suppleflex. I was concerned about it having enough backbone while delivering a soft drop on sz18-20 dries. It did the job on quite a few number of skiddish natives. I'm a believer.

        For delicate presentations.

        Picked this up in 5 and 6x for use with my Tenkara rod. Just like the name says, this stuff is supple. Makes delicate presentation of little tiny dries easy. I was skeptical at first that this would really make a difference but I was pleasantly surprised.
