Shooting heads Conventional and Reversed Density (RD)
Sink-line casting made a lot easier
Better fishing depth control
Easy lift and pick up of your sinking line
Casts equally well overhead and spey
Long flight & Smooth presentations
Conventional Density: The conventional density design featuring the highest density in the tip of the fly line works as intended when the water pressure is low. Slow moving water allows the heavier density tip of the fly line to sink due to the lack of water pressure. The lighter rear end makes it easy to manually control the line speed.
Reversed Density: With this concept, sink-line fishing is made allot easier. These dual density lines have the Reverse Density compared to conventional shooting heads. Picking up and casting will be easier in running water. When the heavier rear end sinks, the lighter tip will be pushed down due to the water pressure. When lifting your rod-tip, the water pressure will make the line level out higher in the water. If you put your rod-tip down and leave some slack, the line will sink deeper and level out there. Control your fishing depth to a large extent! The heavier density close to your rod tip transfer more energy from your rod into the line. You might cast longer than ever before. Try it!
The Reversed Density concept easily explained
STEP 1: LETTING THE SHOOTING HEAD SINK
Our Reversed Density (RD) Shooting Heads have the higher density located towards the tip of the rod, letting the rear end of the line sink faster, then the tip end of the shooting head.
STEP 2: WATER CURRENT TAKES INN
When the shooting head is taken by the current, the lower density tip will be pulled down to the level of the higher density rear end. The result is better control over your fishing depth.
STEP 3: PICK-UP OF THE SHOOTING HEAD
The Reversed Density allows for easier Pick-Up of your line from running water; as only the lower density stays in the water under Pick-Up.
When Spey-Casting you will have the advantage of setting the anchor with the lower density tip.
