For 2014 RIO has taken on reinventing their Spey category of lines.

With new offerings in Scandi and Skagit heads as well as a couple of new running lines it’s an impressive undertaking.

The driving goal for RIO’s redesign is to simplify Spey lines and make them accessible to the angler who’s new to Spey. Selections have been streamlined with the goal of combining the best characteristics of some of RIO’s best lines. All of the new products feature a color coding system that make swapping heads simple and fast. Several of the new offerings use RIO’s new Connect Core technology for lines that have very little stretch.

My favorite of the new products is Grip Shooter. It’s an updated version of the hard nylon running line Slick Shooter. It has the same oval profile and shoots like a bandit but the first fifteen feet are coated with a positive grip coating, making it easier to handle when casting. Especially with cold wet hands. I got the chance to fish it recently and I really like it.
