I've got a line I dredged up from the Hoodoo River in AK last season, not sure what exactly I've got...

Pale orange color (entire line solid color), 25ft long, welded loop on one end stamped "RIO 575 gr".

I'm assuming it's an older RIO Skagit head, and that the stamped end (which is finer than the other) is the front. Any help?

(If you lost this line, let me know which hole it was in, and you can have it back).

The stamped end was the rear on the rio flights.
Yes, good point, this can be a bit confusing with the steep back taper. chumbum, measured around 18 inches from the end, the 575 gr flight is about 0.105in at the rear (stamped end) and 0.085 in the front. The front taper is thinner, but, not as thin as the 0.045 foot-or-so short back section that connects to the running line.

Thanks for the info everyone. Finding this line was a good score- I have a rod that loves 375 skagits.
