Perform X delivers the Holy Grail in tippet performance – brute strength and resiliency. Our three layer construction gives our new nylon unique properties. Our 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. Our Hydrophobic coating keeps the nylon from absorbing water throughout the day which historically results in weaker knots and overall tinsel strength. Our third layer is a continuous coating which creates smooth, consistent, and reliable material. All of our X rated tippet includes a custom Umpqua ProBand to keep tippet at the ready, right where you left it.
