RIO Products New Skagit Shooting Head Offerings Utilize ConnectCore Technology
October 1, 2013 (Idaho Falls, Idaho) – RIO Products, manufacturer of fly lines, leaders and tippet material, is thrilled to introduce three new additions to its Skagit Series of spey lines – Skagit Max, Max Short and iShort Shooting Heads.
RIO’s unique ConnectCore results in a fly line with only about six percent stretch as opposed to the standard 28-32 percent stretch. This ultra-low stretch makes a line much more dynamic to spey cast with helping anglers gain distance through more instinctive timing and better loading. It also enhances sensitivity to detect subtle takes, avoid snags when fishing deep and allows for fast, efficient hook sets.
The new Skagit Max Shooting Head is an easy-casting, ultra-powerful head that is ideal for casting big flies and heavy sink tips. The weight distribution deeply loads rods for long, powerful casts while the subtle taper design generates smooth, efficient loops. The Skagit Max is available from 425 grains through 750 grains in 25 grain increments and varies between 22 feet and 25 feet depending on the line size. The teal colored head features a hot orange rear loop that makes it easy for anglers to distinguish the rear end from the front end and is printed with all the head specifications.
All these new Skagit heads have a MSRP of $54.95.
