RIO 15ft InTouch Type 8 Replacement Tips now feature RIO's ConnectCore. The ConnectCore core has very little line stretch for maximum sensitivity and positive hook sets.
Use RIO's InTouch Replacement Tips to replace damaged/missing tips from your VersiTip line system or to add to your Skagit heads on Spey or switch rods.
The RIO 15ft InTouch Type 8 Replacement Tips are a very fast sinking, tapered sinking tip with a sink rate of 8-9 ips. Each tip has a green colored-coded, Easy ID welded loop on the rear and a small, neat welded loop on the front for fast of rigging. Each tip is also density compensated to sink faster near the fly and keep you in maximum contact with your fly at all times.
For adding them to Skagit heads, as a basic rule, use the 7wt for 350 to 400 grain heads, the 8wt for 400 to 500 grain heads, the 9wt for 500 to 600 grain heads, and the 10wt for 600 to 650 grain heads.
