The taper offers controlled and accurate turnover both with long leaders or with the biggest, bulkiest flies in your fly box. The taper construction distributes enough “loading-weight” into the back of the line, making casts with limited backspace easier to perform. This gives a true advantage when fishing heavily overgrown rivers or lakes and coastal areas with obstacles behind you. Because of their short length, these lines have a very concentrated weight that loads the rod effectively.
For maximum rod load, we recommend that you use a set up with for example the #6/7-16gr head on a 6-weight rod.If you prefer a slightly lighter feeling in your casting and fishing, you may choose to “down-size” by for instance using the 16 gram #6/7 head on your 7-weight rod. Both options will work beautifully, but your demands and preferences will decide what is best for you. Ultra Compact Heads come with factory made tiny-loops in both ends. Color: Light Blue.
