RIO Shooting Taper

The OutBound Integrated Shooting Taper loads rods quickly and easily...

Shooting head systems are great for their changability and because they help you reach long distances, but if you don't need to switch the head on a trip, why bother with them? RIO introduces its newest line - an integrated shooting taper designed to cast like a shooting head and get you more distance - for just such a purpose.

The OutBound Integrated Shooting Taper loads rods quickly and easily, which in turn allows you to cast more line not only farther, but also faster. Its  Powerflex core combines with a reversed compound taper and an ultrathin running line to help ensure you get the most distance possible without tangles. Each line's 371¼2-foot head weighs more than the AFTMA standards in order to load the newer high-performance rods more fully and with fewer false casts.

The OutBound works best in cooler saltwater climates and comes in five sink rates, ranging from a floater to a Type 8 density-compensated sinking
