    Airflo Rage Compact Floating Skagit Shooting Head


    The Airflo Rage Compact shooting head was designed to combat extremely windy weather and tight quarter casting situations. Many desert steelhead rivers such as the Deschutes and Snake can have wicked afternoon winds, making it extremely difficult for all but the most experienced casters to fish floating lines. Many anglers believe the Rage casts better in all conditions than traditional Scandi lines, because of its shorter, more aggressive front taper. It is more adaptable when adding Poly Leaders and VersiLeaders or even lightweight sinking tips than most traditional Scandi lines. The short rear taper built into the Rage helps your rod to load quickly, giving you incredible control and launch speed in tight casting conditions.

    The Rage's characteristics also allow you to maintain the compact casting stroke that works so well when executing sustained anchor Skagit casts. Rage heads may be used equally well when using sustained anchor casts or touch-and-go casts. Rage lines fit about half way between Scandi and Skagit lines. If your rod requires a 450 Scandi and a 510 Skagit, it will like a 480 Rage.

    The Rage is fast becoming the line of choice for fishing surface and near surface presentations. The Lichen green color stands out, so you see your head at any distance, allowing a measure of control during the swing/drift.

    Nine sizes from 360 to 600 grains, and lengths of 28" to 32" make matching the proper size to almost any two-handed rod easy. There are heavy duty loops at both ends, and the front loop has the line size printed on it making for easy changing and head recognition. As with other Airflo Skagit heads, the Rage is built on a low stretch/low memory 30lb. braided power core.

    This line is much easier to cast than a true Scandi line, giving one a great floating line option. It also cast poly/versi-leaders. I really like it with a intermediate tip for summer run fishing.

    This is the most versatile line I've ever thrown. It'll handle polys and light T material both very well. Works well for fishing big surface bugs too!

    I normally use 450/460 gr 33 or 34 ft scandi line on my 6/7/8 Burkey. The rage compact at 30 ft works best with a light sink tip to better hold your anchor. The added mass does help in windy conditions but really shines if you want to throw a double fly rig.
