New RIO Shooting Heads

Idaho Falls, Idaho (June 2, 2014 ) – RIO Products, industry-leading manufacturer of fly lines, leaders and tippet material, introduces saltwater anglers to a full range of floating, intermediate and sinking shooting heads in its cold, saltwater fly line series.

Based on the popular OutBound Short series of lines, RIO designed the OutBound Short Shooting Heads with a powerful front taper to cast the largest flies with ease and ensure long casts. The front-loaded weight distribution quickly loads rods, while the step down taper at the back allows for very long flight times and easy distance. The heads are built two sizes above American Fishing Tackle Manufacturers (AFTM) standard to correctly load modern rods, so there is no need to step up a line size as it is accomplished for anglers in the design. The OutBound Short Shooting Heads work well from 50-80ºF and have Extreme Slickness technology to ensure massive casts every time.

Available in ST7-ST10 weights, four density options complete any anglers’ arsenal – from full floating, to a sink rate of 1.5-2 inches per second (ips), 3-4ips and 6-7ips. The full floating lines are moss colored; 1.5-2ips are clear, 3-4ips are brown, and 6-7ips are black Each head has and Easy ID loop at the band end for quick recognition. Find any of these shooting heads at any RIO dealer for a retail price of $44.95.

    Are they available in the United Kingdom

  2. Looks like a nice addition to the lineup guys; I’ll have to try it on my next trip north to the Keys. I used your freshwater shooting heads for the first time with a group on the Limay Medio here in Patagonia last season, as we chased big migratory browns. Completely revolutionized the experience… Thanks for making great products. Memo

      Hi John
      The Shooting Heads are simply the same taper as the OutBound Short for those who like the versatility of changing out heads. If you like things integrated then the normal Outbound Short a great choice.
