Short, Easy Casting Heads For The Biggest Flies, And Tightest Restrictions
The Elite Skagit Max Power replaces the Skagit Max Short Fly Line. The front 5 feet of line is thicker in diameter and is specifically designed for Switch and 12 Foot Spey Rods.
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.
