Industry News: RIO’s new series of Skagit style shooting heads

IDAHO FALLS, IDAHO (August 1, 2018)

RRIO, manufacturer of lines, leaders, tippet, flies, and accessories for the demanding fly fisher, introduces the latest technology in fly line design to its Spey shooting head range with the InTouch Skagit Max GameChanger.

The InTouch Skagit Max GameChanger is a series of Skagit style shooting heads each built with multiple density changes that gives the Spey angler incredible depth control and amazingly smooth, effortless casts. The seamless transition of graduated densities eliminates the kick and hinge usually common when casting sink tips, ensuring the angler has complete control while casting and fishing.

Built with powerful front tapers and plenty of grains per foot, this new series of heads casts large flies and sink tips as easily as floating lines, yet allows anglers to swing a fly slowly and at deeper depths than ever before – perfect for fishing in strong currents or in cooler conditions.

Available from 425 grains to 725 grains, this series consists of three different density combinations: The F/H/I (float/hover/intermediate) is dark aqua/light aqua/orange in color and ideal for swinging 2- to 4-feet in depth. The F/H/I/S3 (float/hover/intermediate/sink 3) is brown/dark aqua/light aqua/orange and swings effectively from 3- to 6-feet in depth, while the fast-sinking F/I/S3/S5 (float/intermediate/sink 3/sink 5 ) is gray/brown/dark aqua/orange and is the perfect dredger for Kings and winter steelhead – typically fishing 6ft to 10ft in depth. Each head is available from a RIO authorized dealers for $59.99.
