All the details that follow are exactly as noted for the fully integrated version of this Skagit line.
This shooting head is a little less expensive than the fully integrated line and is designed for use with a running line system, allowing quick changes of the heads under variable conditions.
This is a Skagit Style line that is very VERSATILE with casting modest and large flies with modest weight sink tips, however it is this is NOT the line to cast a 15 ft T-17 tip like you might choose to cast with a 600 gr Skagit line on the Dean.
This is a shooting head and NOT a fully integrated line.
The short head allows you to cast with brush or rocks close behind, and deliver your flies close and long, wherever the fish are laying.
Features we expect of today's finest fly lines include labeling, loops at both ends, dependable shooting and floating performance.
This is a ConnectCore fly line with minimum stretch, so your bite-detection and hook setting is un-compromised.
An Orange line-marker at the back end of the head lets the caster accurately set up for each cast.
