THE PERFECT LINE FOR CHASING BIG TROPICAL FISH, with low-stretch, ultra-slick performance.
RIO’s Elite Permit line features an easy casting taper that loads at close range, and a long back taper for fast, 2nd shot casts. The front taper and weight distribution is designed to give soft presentations so as not to spook wary Perms, while maintaining enough weight to easily cast typical crab patterns. Each line is built on RIO’s low-memory DirectCore that is extremely easy to stretch and lies perfectly straight on the water, yet retains the stiffness needed to cast in hot conditions.
