UMPQUA PERFORM X TROUT TIPPET
Perform X delivers the Holy Grail in tippet performance – brute strength and resiliency. The three layer construction gives the Perform X new nylon unique properties. The Perform X core offers the right blend of strength and suppleness to allow a perfectly dead drifted fly to entice the most wary trout, while a secret blend results in the strength to bring the fish to net. The Perform X Hydrophobic coating keeps the nylon from absorbing water throughout the day which historically results in weaker knots and overall tinsel strength. The Perform X third layer is a continuous coating which creates smooth, consistent, and reliable material. All of the Perform X rated tippet includes a custom Umpqua ProBand to keep tippet at the ready, right where you left it.
