RIO’s new Elite Skagit shooting heads are the most perfectly balanced, easiest casting Skagit heads EVER made. Built with a low stretch core and RIO’s incredible SlickCast, these heads are slick, tough beasts that will out cast and out last any other Skagit head on the market.
RIO Skagit Max Launch heads deliver the power needed to cast large flies and sinking tips more elegantly than ever before. The weight distribution deeply loads rods for long, powerful casts, while the refined taper design generates incredibly smooth loops which transition seamlessly from head to tip to fly.
RIO Skagit Max Power heads cast the largest flies and the heaviest sinking tips with exceptional ease. The unique weight distribution deeply loads rods for long casts while the powerful front taper delivers enough punch to turn over all the weight you need to get the fly into the strike zone.
We have created a short video that explains the differences between these two new heads, and what their design attributes are. Click on the link below to watch the video.
We are giving away five pairs of these new Elite Skagit heads – a Skagit Max Launch, and a Skagit Max Power. To win, simply watch the video and let us know what RIO shooting head the new Skagit Max Power replaces.

In Case You Missed It…
In this link to the previous RIO Fly Fishing Tip Simon Gawesworth explains why he likes to use a double taper line. Few people use DT’s these days, and when asked, most people say the best reason for using a double taper line is so you can turn it around. As Simon explains, there is a far better reason than that!
