The easiest casting, most powerful Skagit head ever made.
RIO Skagit Max heads cast large flies and the fastest of sinking tips with exceptional ease. The unique weight distribution deeply loads rods for long, powerful casts, while the subtle taper design generates smooth, easy loops and long, long distances.
All Skagit heads are built on an ultra-low stretch core for the maximum in casting and fishing sensitivity.
For best performance, RIO recommends attaching the following head sizes to these shooting lines sizes:
200 to 400 gr – .024”/.026” shooting line, or 25lb SlickShooter/GripShooter.
400 to 550 gr – .030”/.032” shooting line, or 35lb SlickShooter/GripShooter.
550 to 675 gr – .035”/.037” shooting line, or 44lb SlickShooter/GripShooter.
675 gr and heavier – .040”/.042” shooting line, or 50lb SlickShooter/GripShooter.
Every fly fisherman is looking for a slicker line, and for good reason. Slicker line means longer casts, which is something all anglers strive to achieve. XS Technology is the latest development from RIO’s lab coats that focuses on creating an ultra slick line, with dirt-repelling tendencies.
XS (Extreme Slickness) Technology began when RIO’s chemists began reformulating conventional chemical combinations. Although RIO’s formulas were great, our scientists are fly fishers, and by definition they want an even slicker fly line - it's just part of the deal. So first, they tackled the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) coating and through intense scrutiny down to the polymeric mix level, (say that 10 times fast) they defined some fundamental limitations. Out went the old PVC/silicone formulas and by methodically adding a little more of this, a little less of that, and a pinch of secret sauce, the lab coats cooked up a completely new and improved recipe. With XS Technology, RIO has developed a fly line that is slicker, more stable, and far less apt to attract dirt, and paired with AgentX Technology, it engineers a line that is less dense, casts further and more accurately, floats higher, lasts longer, and offers more consistent performance cast after cast, strike after strike, fish after fish.
A neat, bullet-proof welded loop on the front end for fast rigging.

Easy ID loops are neat, printed loops that show the size and type of the shooting head.
When you rely on touch to know what’s going on in the depths, line stretch is the enemy.
ConnectCore lines open up new worlds of perception and sensitivity with ultra-low stretch performance. Soft, subtle takes become positive grabs, and without stretch to dull reaction times, hook sets are instant and sure. ConnectCore. The secret weapon for success.
