If you just bought the head you will need a running line to go between it and the backing. They are just a shooting head so need to be fully out of the rod to cast properly.bought this yesterday is the line long enough to just put on spool with backing or do I need to add another fly line behind it thanks in advance
Thanks i only got it for casting tubes in high water as I'm struggling with my normal set up i only fish a small spate riverStuart, Rage lines were designed to beat wind conditions that beat other fly lines. As a consequence they are quite compressed with powerful aggressive tapers to turn the leader over.
Now you will need a running line, go for a coated floating 30lb affair, try the Norris one its cheap and works perfectly well.That go's on the back end.
Rage lines need carefull consideration to leader set up as they can take quite a bit of anchoring to form your D loop.To that effect you need an appropriate 10ft poly tip and 5 to 6ft of tippet to the flee.
Cast them slow n easy, no ghurt big heave's and thrashes as its very easy to skip anchors and in general over power the line.Let the rod work the line and all will be fine.Most of all, stick to that leader set up on the front end!, its vitally important!
This was what I got sorry for late reply
