The article says it shoots better than Amnesia. My only experience with Amnesia was when doing the chuck and duck. Is the RIO mentioned for pretty much the same thing? dunno.gif I ask because I am looking for something better than the Amnesia.

Fred I havent seen the Rio line, wouldnt have a link to it would ya?


I have a couple different Rio lines and I have been very impressed with them they make a fine fly line. Only thing I wonder is If this line your speaking of has a slick coating, if it does then I remember about 7 years ago getting a special "slick coat" line (cant remember who made it) that was a special line for C&D. Problem with that line was the slick coating would crack and seperate from the core, everyone I know that had it including myself had that problem, so I'm just wondering if this Rio line is the same type of thing?

rio slick shooter is amazing stuff, i've been using it for about four years on my spey shooting heads. not only does it go through the guides like nothing but it also fishes well i'd highly recomend it.
