AIRFLO Rage Compact Spey/Switch Head

Its aggressive front taper gives ultimate power for driving casts into the strongest winds, the rear taper helps load quickly, giving you incredible control in tight casting conditions.
Eleven sizes from 300 to 600 grains, and lengths of 27.5' to 32' make matching the proper size to almost any two-handed rod easy and succinct.
The front loop has the line size printed on it for easy recognition and as with all Airflo Tactical Shooting heads, this line is built on low stretch, low memory braided Power Core.

Winston Energy Fly Lines
Winston ENERGY fly lines utilize an entirely new scientific approach that enhances the energy transfer between the rod and line. By measuring the dynamic characteristics of fly rods at various flex points, Winston designers have precisely engineered lines that are ideal for each rod weight. The result is a series of lines that perfectly match the performance characteristics of Winston fly rods in particular, (and most of today's trout rods in general), cast and fish wonderfully, and provide anglers with optimized line control, accuracy and, most importantly, presentation.

STEALTH / HIGH FLOTATION TIP – Winston ENERGY Trout fly lines are all two colors and feature a muted-color, low visibility high flotation stealth tip section of 10-feet to help avoid spooking fish when the line is in the air or on the water. Winston ENERGY Trout fly lines also feature high flotation tips for a better read and reference for the angler.
LINE COLOR – Winston ENERGY fly line colors were chosen to look beautiful as well as for optimum performance. The muted putty-color 10-foot front tip section on the ENERGY Trout lines helps to avoid spooking fish when the line is in the air and on the water. For the fly line ‘belly’ and ‘running line,’ our bright Chartreuse Green color was chosen specifically to help anglers better see their line in the air and on the water which can help with casting performance and mending.
LINE WEIGHT MARKING – All Winston ENERGY fly lines come with the line weight and fly line model marked clearly but subtly toward the front of the fly line to make sure the angler always knows which line is on the reel.
LINE COATING – Winston ENERGY lines use a state-of-the-art durable coating to enhance surface slickness. Especially when used together with the new Shooting Guides™ on Winston fly rods, these fly lines significantly reduce friction, resulting in incredible accuracy and optimal presentation of the fly line and fly.
LINE CORE – Winston ENERGY Trout fly lines feature a supple core designed specifically for freshwater environments. These supple cores are important to provide shock absorption, especially when fishing with small tippet, and are designed for colder and moderate freshwater temperatures
LOOPS – All Winston ENERGY fly lines have durable welded front and back loops making it easy for the angler to quickly change leaders or to change out the entire fly line. For those who prefer not to use loops, they can be snipped off quickly and easily without affecting the fly line performance.
RIO Bonefish Fly Line
RIO's Bonefish line has a long head and rear taper to smooth out the loop, and to make long efficient casts, while the mid length front taper produces great turnover and easy presentation of typical bonefish flies. This is a great line for the more experienced flats angler, and ideal for fast 2nd shot casts to cruising fish.
The line has a high floating, AgentX coating that ensure the running line and tip stays afloat, and feature a medium stiff core, with a tropical coating that stays firm in the heat. Welded loops on both ends of the line makes for easy rigging.
