UST SD Sh.Head Intermediate

€ 84,95

Featuring a powerful taper, HI-VIZ tracer, Seamless Density sinking technology and Shooting Textured surface. The UST SD allows you to get the fly out to the fish FAST with no effort, and fish the fly at the desired depth and speed.

FFE have developed a new series of shooting heads for the European angler that spend their summers chasing salmon and seatrout! The development work has been done in close cooperation with Scientific Anglers with the specific goal of developing a series of lines that we would be proud to call “badass fishing tools”.

The idea was not only to create a series of shooting heads that make the thousands of casts a hardcore angler cycle through during a season seem effortless, they should fish really well too. To accomplish our goals, these lines are packed with the latest technology developments that Scientific Anglers have to offer.

  • Powerful taper designed to load modern rods. Turns over heavy flies and long leaders while maintaining a precise delivery of the fly.
  • Handles large fly patterns with excellent turnover.
  • Vibrantly colored tracer at the rear end of the head for full control of the swing on distance or in low light conditions.
  • The Seamless Density sinking technology provides a super-smooth transition between different densities, eliminating hinging and providing a straight line connection to the fly.
  • Exceptional long sinking tips ensure deep and controlled presentations of the fly.
  • Shooting Texture allows the line to be easily lifted from the depth before the next cast.

Meet the Scientific Anglers Line Identification System. SA•ID is an innovative line-marking system allowing you to identify your lines at a glance. Wonder if a shooting head is 200 grain or a 300? Just look at the SA•ID. The SA•ID can be found on the first 1-2 feet of the tip section of your line.

Scientific Anglers’ patented dry-slick technology provides continual line slickness, allowing the line to shoot farther as it moves through the guides. Lines with AST easily shed dirt, algae, and other parasitic drag particles, allowing lines to cast farther, float higher, and stay cleaner than traditional lines.

Exceptionally slick and strong, our Welded Loops produce smoother casts and easier turnover with a seamless fly-line-to-loop transition, making for softer landings and cleaner pickups. The sleek design also maintains buoyancy for improved fly-line flotation and enables quicker connections between fly line and leaders or fly line and backing.

The Scientific Anglers Shooting Texture features precisely replicated hemispherical divots, similar to those found on a golf ball’s surface. This evolution of our texturing technology has less texture on its surface so it feels like a traditional fly line but performs with the benefits of texturing. The result is a line that lasts longer, floats higher, casts easier, and, most importantly, fishes better.

Our Seamless Density technology is a gradual mixing of densities that provides a smooth transition between disparate densities, providing less hinging and a straight-line connection to the fly as it sinks.

To suit the specific needs of European fly fishermen, Flyfish Europe have teamed up with Scientific Anglers to design, craft and engineer a range of fly lines that are carefully attuned to the conditions faced by fly fishermen across the European continent.

Cleaning with soap and water on a cloth removes most of the dirt, but cleaning pads work even better. Properly cleaned, your lines will cast better and last longer, certainly a good trade-off for a couple of minutes of line maintenance.

To use the cleaning pad, pinch the pad over the line so that the abrasive, non-foam side touches the line. Pull the fly line through the pad under some tension. Repeat this process until some of the fly line color is visible on the pad.

Clean your lines every 2-3 outings, or anytime you think dirt is hindering their performance. The cleaning pads are easy to carry in your vest or tackle bag and can be used anytime, wet or dry.

Note that flyline dressing can be used to reduce friction during competition- or practice casting scenarios, but we don’t recommend it for fishing.
