SA recently announced several new spey lines and shooting heads as part of its Mastery Series, each designed for a specific purpose. “Skagit Deluxe” shooting head lines feature short tips designed for situations with little room for backcasts. The “Shorthead Multi Tip” lines include four 15-foot tips of various sink rates. “Classic” lines have a short head and long taper. “XLT” lines are specifically for anglers looking for maximum distance and for tournament caster. And “Tungsten” leaders are type VI sinking heads that come with welded loops on both ends; available in 10- and 15-foot lengths, Tungsten leaders are designed for use with the Spey Classic and XLT lines.
