RIO Elite Metered Shooting Line



RIO’s Elite Metered Shooting Line is an excellent shooting line that is easy to handle, has virtually zero stretch, and flies through the guides with ease. RIO's "RangeFinder" system features a color change every 10ft to easily gauge how far each cast is, and also helps in managing the running line when shooting a lot of line. Built with RIO's ConnectCore plus core to provide positive hooksets and better control when fighting a fish. The unique core also ensures the most perfect coils of line when stripping in – resulting in far few tangles and snarls. Bulletproof loops at both ends and a slight taper at the front of the Elite Metered Shooting provides a seamless transition from the shooting line to the shooting head.

  • Short front taper stabilizes the cast and ensures maximum distance and flight time
  • Color change (metered) every 10ft for easy casting distance calculation
  • Low-stretch ConnectCore Plus for the best in casting control, performance and smoothness
  • Built with RIO's exceptionally slick, durable SlickCast coating

    A neat, bulletproof loop welded at the front of the fly line for fast Spey-specific rigging.
