Not as heavy as outbound shorts, and a more even distribution of weight in the head of the line. I get more distance, nicer loops, and can still move big flies on my 8wt.

Rio's Striped Bass Line is the perfect line for stripers, bluefish, and other aggressive coldwater fish. When paired with a fast action rod, such as TFO Axiom 2X, I was able to cast large and bulky saltwater flies almost the entire 100 feet. Both the intermediate and the sinking lines worked well to present my flies to fish deeper than a floating line was able to. I look forward to chasing the Stripers again with these lines because they make the experience exponentially more enjoyable and easy.

Use this for stripers in NH. Easy to cast from the shore. I even use it bass fishing when throwing heavy flies

This review is a bit of an odd one . I have used more lines than I can even remember or care to list . However this line for my north east salt water application has been the best by a country mile . So much so that I order in an 8 wt float 9 wt intermediate 10 wt float and sink. The strange part about it is it’s THIS particular line that is incredible...not the brand per say . I have not so great experiences with the outbound short line.

I had bought this in the floating version, and now I bought the 400grain sink tip, it is once again, amazing, I could not be happier with it, it is slick, casts a mile, and gets the fly to the fish. I would recommend this to anyone fishing cold water

This is a great line - casts well and in low light easy to see - used it for albies and stripers out of Montauk and my friend the guide loved it too!

Sought to have a line to fish from the shore some schoolies. I bought an 8wt intermediate and works great! cast well and it’s a really smooth line. I would buy again the same libe.

This is the best sink tip line I’ve found for saltwater. Gets the flies down in the strike zone where the fish are at.
