Rio’s InTouch Skagit Max GameChanger Float / Intermediate / Sink 3 / Sink 5 (F/I/S3/S5) is a quadruple density sinking Skagit head built to effortlessly cast sink tips and heavy flies for the deepest presentations possible.
The rear portion of the F/I/S3/S5 floats so you can mend during the swing and steer your presentation. The rest of the line sinks like crazy. This isn’t an all purpose line. In fact it only has one purpose. To help you dissect the water column in the heaviest of currents when sink tips and weighted flies alone are not enough.
The head is built with an ultra low stretch core for enhanced bite detection and feeling when you are about to get snagged on the bottom or structure.
You’ll need a shooting/running line to fish the Skagit Max GameChanger heads, as well as a sink tip and a few feet of monofilament leader. Please note that it is important that the sink tip you chose to fish with the F/I/S3/S5 isn’t lighter (lower sink rate) than that of the Sink 5 front portion of the head. This head is best paired with T11 and T14 sink tips.
