RIO’s ultra-low stretch ConnectCore improves the performance of a fly line by reducing the stretch associated with regular cores, so RIO Products, maker of fly lines, leaders, tippet, and accessories, has added it to two popular lines with the new InTouch OutBound Short in both freshwater and saltwater families.

ConnectCore Technology uses a very low-stretch core giving anglers better performance when casting, mending, detecting strikes, and setting the hook. The new InTouch OutBound Short lines are easy casting lines that have great power behind them for long distances. Both the freshwater and saltwater coldwater versions are designed to cast large and heavy flies with ease thanks to the short, aggressive front taper. The powerful head design loads rods deeply and efficiently for effortless long distance casts. A full range of densities in each line series makes them very versatile.

The InTouch OutBound Short lines have Extreme Slickness Technology for ultra-slick performance, feature RIO’s DualTone coloring to easily see where the line’s perfect loading point is, and are built with a supple, coldwater coating to ensure the line remains tangle free. Welded loops on both ends allow easy rigging. Both line families can be found at any RIO dealer for $89.95.
