    RIO SKagit Max Shooting Head Lines

    RIO was the first to introduce the world to commercially made Skagit lines. Several generations with incremental improvements followed. RIO Skagit Max heads cast large flies and the fastest of sinking tips with exceptional ease. The unique weight distribution deeply loads rods for long, powerful casts, while the subtle taper design generates smooth, easy loops and long, long distances. These lines are built on RIO's ConnectCore with a more sensitive feel for detection of those cold water pluckers. The RIO Skagit Max is all about ease.

    RIO Skagit Max Heads range from 23' to 25' in length, depending on grain-weight. Click the Specifications link for more info.

    For best performance, RIO recommends attaching the following head sizes to these shooting lines sizes:
    200 to 400 gr - .024"/.026" shooting line, or 25lb SlickShooter/GripShooter.
    400 to 550 gr - .030"/.032" shooting line, or 35lb SlickShooter/GripShooter.
    550 to 675 gr - .035"/.037" shooting line, or 44lb SlickShooter/GripShooter.
