Best Sink Tip

INTOUCH BIG NASTY 4D SINK TIP

Like its Big Nasty floating line, Rio’s innovative new sink tip is built on an ultra-low-stretch core and tapered to shoot large, heavy flies. Unlike sink-tip lines that tend to bow as they sink, the innovative 4D’s sink rate changes four times along its length, with the tip sinking fastest, the next section a bit slower and so on. The result is a straight-line descent for better strike detection and hooksetting.
