SMOOTH CASTING, POWERFUL HEADS for big flies and sink tips with lowstretch, ultra-slick performance.
RIO Skagit Max Launch heads deliver the power needed to cast large flies and sinking tips more elegantly than ever before. The unique weight distribution deeply loads rods for long, powerful casts, while the refined taper design generates incredibly smooth loops which transition seamlessly from head to tip to fly. The low stretch core gives incredible levels of sensitivity when casting and fishing, and provides enhanced detection of takes, more positive hook sets, and far greater control when playing a fish.In addition, this line is built with SlickCast, creating the slickest, most durable coating on the market—producing the least amount of friction ever measured in a fly line.
For best performance, RIO recommends attaching the following head sizes to these shooting lines sizes:200 to 400gr – .024”/.026” shooting line, or 25lb SlickShooter/GripShooter.400 to 550gr – .030”/.032” shooting line or 35lb SlickShooter/GripShooter.550 to 675gr – .035”/.037” shooting line, or 44lb SlickShooter/GripShooter.675gr and heavier – .040”/.042” shooting line or 50lb SlickShooter/GripShooter.
The new version of rio.skagit shooting heads the lunch and the power will probably be the best heads on the market
