Tippet material for Icelandic rivers

For those with experience of fishing the Icelandic rivers, should I consider alternative tippet material to maxima and seaguar?

I usually use seaguar for clear water conditions but it seems too stiff and inflexible to fish tiny flies on the end. Assume I’ll need something more supple to make the fly more lifelike...?

I have always used Maxima Ultragreen as I was told that fluoro, being denser, took the fly too far down in the small river I fished, at least in lower water.
The guides often tied a rapala knot (I think) to allow the fly-usually a 16 or even 18- to articulate at the end of a stiffer leader.
