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.
