Rio Fluoroflex Plus Tippet Reviews
Very Tough and Durable Review by David
I use fluorocarbon exclusively now and I love it. The fluoroflex plus is very durable and can take much more abuse than regular nylon line. I feel it does make a substantial difference in catching, the line is much less visible.
The official description does say it's good to tie on to regular nylon line but I find that to be a stretch. It slips and I don't think fluorocarbon should be tied on to nylon. If you're going to spend the money for fluorocarbon, why would you still use nylon. If you do, invest in tippet rings.
Excellent Product Review by Robert
The RIO fluorocarbon is all I use when I am trout fishing. I usually stick with the 5x and it rarely (if ever) snaps on me. Even when I have hooked a really big trout, this tippet holds up. And I rarely have to add more. I prefer fluorocarbon and feel it is harder for the East Tennessee trout to see, but that's just my opinion. I definitely recommend this tippet.
Good strength but gets roughed up quick Review by TenaciousP
I have used this in the 0x, 1x, and 2x. It is as strong as its rating (almost, I find all fluro leader to be a bit weaker than listed.) The shock strength of Flouroflex is very good for a fluro. However, nymphing in a river I found it gets roughed up by an abrasive bottom quicker than I would like. If you use it, be sure to keep an eye on it and change it out often.

The absolute best Review by seth
I buy this in the guide spool as I take kids out freequently and tend to have it snap, wind knots tree branches and other situations. this tipet is tougher than any other brand I have tried and it lasts. not sure if the fish see it any less but the abraision resistance seems to be better than anything else I have tried.
