These shooting heads are extremely easy to cast and give you the ability to lift sinking lines out of the water with ease and to fire accurate and effective casts from tight spots. Power Taper Compact lines are specialized tools for small to medium rivers or in slow flowing waters where a longer sinking shooting head would be hard to lift out for a new cast. These ‘Ready To Go’ (RTG) shooting heads are pre looped, ID marked and available in six sink rates.
Compact double-hand (DH) lines are best suited for rods up to 14 feet in length and single handed lines are ideal for Switch rods and single-handed rods. They are designed as a true shooting head with a Triple-Density configuration and with no back taper. All sinking lines have a 2 feet yellow back end for easier control and visibility when fishing. Lines are pre-looped for easy and fast line changes on the riverbank. Use a slick running line with the sinking lines, especially if you want to fish the fly to fish as slow as possible. Due to the short head and the thin running line water pressure won’t push the line across the current as quickly as a longer head or if a thicker running line were to be used. The floating heads will work well with Guideline’s TSL running line that is tapered for a smoother energy transfer when casting.
