RIO Tungsten Custom Cut Shooting Heads

rio_tungsten_custom.jpg
RIO developed these heads as a tungsten alternative to lead core. They are supple, do not kink and sink like a stone.T-11 (8 inches per second) is designed for lighter weight rods and weighs 11 grains per foot. T-14, weighing 14 grains per foot and sinks at 9 inches per second, is best for single-hand rods from 8 through 12 weight, and tips for double-hand rods. T-14 works especially well with Skagit lines. T-17 sinks at 10 inches per second, it makes light work of getting depth and casting big flies. T-20 and T-25 are the newest additions. When you need some serious weight!

Cut these heads to the desired length and weight to meet existing fishing conditions.
