RIO‘s shooting heads are based on the popular OutBound Short lines, and are designed to cast very long distances. The front loaded weight distribution quickly loads a rod, while the unique step down taper at the back allows for very long flight times and easy distance. The heads are built above the AFTM standard to correctly load modern rods - anglers do not need to step up a line size when choosing a line for their rod, as this is done in the design. Each head has Easy ID for quick identification.
RIO recommends attaching the following head sizes to these shooting lines sizes:
ST7 to ST8 – 0.024”/0.026” shooting line, or 25lb SlickShooter/GripShooter
ST8 to ST10 – 0.030”/0.032” shooting line, or 35lb SlickShooter/GripShooter
