After recently leaving this brand to try Umpqua. I am back and back for good. Less break offs, less re-rigging, and more fish in the net. Tippet makes a big difference!

I've had a hard time finding good fluorocarbon tippet in the smaller sizes (5x/6x/7x). This is the one I've come back to after I run out. It is supple, has good abrasion resistance and the breaking strength is close to what is advertised. It is expensive though, but isn't all fly fishing fluoro tippet expensive...

Excellent fluoro tippet with high strength to diameter ratio.

I have fished with RIO, SA, and Umpqua's flouro tippet and after each I can say that RIO is my favorite. I think the diameter may be slightly larger in 6x, but the trade off in knot strength is where the biggest difference has been, they tie great knots if you do, period.

So far, so good. Purchased in the guide spool sizes because I go through the stuff so fast. No breaks yet.

I was reluctant to spend a lot for fluoroflex tippet when mono seems to work fine but after some research decided it was the best choice for the weighted nymphs that are the best in the waters I trout fish. String, easy to get down, and best of all seems to be much better abrasive resistant bouncing along tge bottom.
I now use tge Rio fluroroflex in all of my non dry fly fishing.
Great tippet material and worth the extra money.

Holds up well in the aussie salt, nymphing in NZ, or fishing steelhead in BC. Subtle, stealthy, and strong.

This is my go to tippet for all fly fishing applications. Have used it from 0X - 7x and it has served me well. Have caught Large carp on 4x even though wouldn't recommend that...

Excellent material and quite strong. Use with a tippet ring and you’ll only have to change your leaders every now and again. Use 2x/3x for steelhead in Lake Erie Tribs.
