The Rio Elite Skagit Mini Max Power Shooting Head is the ideal head for casting streamers and heavy sink tips on light two-handed rods and trout spey with exceptional ease.
The unique weight distribution deeply loads the rod for long casts while a powerful front taper delivers enough punch to turn over all the weight you need to get large flies down to the fish. Shorter head lengths make this line the perfect choice for two-handed rods in lighter sizes, enabling easy casts when space behind the caster is limited.
Each head is built on RIO's low-stretch ConnectCore Plus, giving the angler enhanced detection of takes, more positive hook sets, and greater control when playing a fish. In addition, SlickCast coating technology creates the slickest, most durable coating on the market—producing the least amount of friction ever measured in a fly line.
A shooting line is required to make this head fishable.
