RIO's Elite Skagit Shooting Heads Explained

RIO Products

RIO's Elite Skagit shooting heads are two completely new shooting heads, designed for the Spey angler. Each head feature's RIO's SlickCast, for unprecedented slickness and durability, as well as being built on RIO's ultra-low stretch ConnectCore. This series comprises of the Skagit Max Launch & Skagit Max Power.

Skagit 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.

Skagit Max Power heads cast the largest flies and the heaviest sinking tips with exceptional ease. The unique weight distribution deeply loads rods for long casts while the powerful front taper delivers enough punch to turn over all the weight you need to get the fly into the strike zone. Shorter head lengths make the Max Power the perfect choice for shorter rods or when space behind the caster is limited. Each Skagit head is designed to perfectly balance the recommended tips that go with that size, ensuring the most perfectly balanced Skagit rig you could ask for.

If you are planning a trip to swing for steel, you can do no better than arm yourself with one of these new Skagit heads from RIO.
