These fast sinking, level tips have a tungsten compound coating, are supple, do not kink and sink like a rock. Built on RIO’s ultra-low stretch ConnectCore, they are extremely sensitive to soft grabs and ensure fast, solid hook sets.
There are 5 different weights of "T" tip available; T-8, T-11, T-14, T-17 and T-20, and each size is either available in a 30 ft pack with welded loops on both ends (T-20 doesn't have any welded loops), or as a bulk, 500 ft spool.
The tip weights are color-coded for easy identification. T-8 is dark red, T-11 dark green, T-14 dark blue, T-17 dark gray and T-20 is black. The tip size indicates the weight per foot, so for example "T-8" weighs 8 grains per foot, and "T-14" weighs 14 grains per foot.
The sink rate of each tip is as follows, with their relevant breaking strength in parenthesis): T-8 = 6-7 ips (20lb) T-11 = 7-8 ips (20lb) T-14 = 8-9 ips (30lb) T-17 = 9-10 ips (30lb) T-20 = 10+ ips (30lb)
Each tip is designed to be cut and tuned to the angler’s individual fishing and casting requirements. Once your tip is cut to the length you want, it is easy to weld a loop on the end by using RIO'S LEVEL T WELDING TUBING.
