Back-End Welded Loop|
With RIO’s 30 ft shooting heads you can cast long distances with ease. The unique taper design stabilizes the head in the air and prevents “dumping” at the end of the cast which translates into greater distance. The head weight is built to AFTM standards and most casters will find it an advantage to step up two line sizes from their rod rating - so put an 8wt head on a 6wt rod. Each head has an easy ID loop for quick recognition; attach this loop to the shooting line.
Whether for saltwater, steelhead, salmon or trout, the RIOMax II shooting heads will improve distance.
