Rio Elite Skagit Max Power Shooting Head - See Skagit Video & Chart
Smooth Casting, Powerful Shooting Heads for big flies and sink tips with low stretch, ultra-slick performance.
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. Shorter head lengths make the Max Power the perfect choice for shorter rods or when space behind the caster is limited. The low stretch core gives incredible levels of sensitivity when casting and fishing, and provides enhanced detection of takes, more positive hook sets, and far greater control when playing a fish.
In addition, this line is built with SlickCast, creating the slickest, most durable coating on the market—producing the least amount of friction ever measured in a fly line.
For best performance, RIO recommends attaching the following head sizes to these shooting lines sizes:
- 200 to 400gr – .024”/.026” shooting line, or 25lb SlickShooter/GripShooter
- 400 to 550gr – .030”/.032” shooting line or 35lb SlickShooter/GripShooter
- 550 to 675gr – .035”/.037” shooting line, or 44lb SlickShooter/GripShooter
- 675gr and heavier – .040”/.042” shooting line or 50lb SlickShooter/GripShooter

DISPATCH. As far as possible, provided postage has been correctly paid and subject to payment being authorised, we aim to dispatch orders 'same working day' on a first class service. Please note where we specifically offer Next Day delivery this means we would use a very reliable carrier on a next working day service but we cannot actually guarantee next day delivery. This may be due to which part of the country you live in where a 2-5 day service may apply or because of high pressure on carriers at certain times of the year causing a short delay. So - not guaranteed for next day delivery but we do our very best and rarely fail. We count 'working days' as Monday to Friday. Goods are not dispatched on Saturday or Sunday.
GOODS OUT OF STOCK
We make every effort to ensure that goods listed are in stock.
Goods out of stock for a day or two will be sent separately. Should there be a longer delay we will contact you to ask your preference.
