RIO Outbound Short Shooting Heads


Please choose which version(s) of this product you would like and click 'Add to Basket' at the bottom of the page

RIO‘s shooting heads are based on the popular OutBound Short lines, and are designed to cast very long distances. The front loaded weight distribution quickly loads a rod, while the unique step down taper at the back allows for very long flight times and easy distance. The heads are built two sizes above the AFTM standard to correctly load modern rods - anglers do not need to step up a line size when choosing a line for their rod, as this is done in the design. Each head has an Easy ID loop at the back end for quick recognition.

  • Unique taper design that stays in the air, resulting in long distance casts
  • Short, powerful front taper that cast large flies easily
  • Front-loaded weight distribution that loads rods quickly and effortlessly
  • RIO recommends attaching the following head sizes to these shooting lines sizes:
  • ST7 to ST8 - 0.024”/0.026” shooting line, or 25lb SlickShooter/GripShooter
  • ST8 to ST10 - 0.030”/0.032” shooting line, or 35lb SlickShooter/GripShooter
