For those anglers who rely on shooting heads in their fishing, a new product from Rio is worth exploring. Rio’s Max II shooting heads feature a unique taper design that utilizes a progressively lighter back section that stays in the air longer and translates into greater casting distance.
The line also incorporates a front-loaded taper design that stabilizes the head in the air and prevents dumping at the end of the cast. This increased weight at the front of the line makes for a product that loads the rod on the initial cast and also delivers big saltwater flies into a stiff breeze with ease. Max II shooting heads, which are 30 feet long, are offered in six different densities in a range of sizes between ST6 and ST12. www.rioproducts.com
