ACE SHOOTING HEADS
The popular and well known ACE shooting heads are now made even better. With a superb new tried and tested taper, we have... The 'Carrot'. In its many forms from floating to sinking there's a line to cover all fishing scenarios.
The new heads have all the necessary features like slim and strong loops at both ends, printing on the loops telling you which end to attach to running line (yes, the running line end loop is same green as on our Ace Skagit heads) and the weight & the sinking/floating speed of head. They are also built over a super sensitive low stretch core so you'll feel even the lightest take.
Floating carrot (orange), clear floating (clear), floating intermediate (ice blue/clear), slomo/intermediate (yellow), intermediate/sink3 (brown) and sink3/sink5 (black).
New Ace shooting heads development and testing group in action on the River Tay, Scotland.
The biggest and most radical step over other shooting heads is our Sliding Density™ construction of the sinking heads. Instead of making the line with two or even three different density materials we've made these lines with a continuous change of the density. So for example our Inter to Sink3 head's density changes gradually from intermediate to Sink3. This way we have made a line which doesn't have ANY hinging effect during the cast. It flies in a really nice and controlled loop offering extremely good energy transfer turning over big and heavy flies. With the Sliding Density™ construction together with the new Carrot taper we've been able to make the easiest casting sinking heads on the market, period.
Sliding Density Compensation™
The other thing with these heads is the Down To Earth colours. The sinking lines are chosen to mimic best its environment sub surface, these being brownish and greenish in colour. The Floating Carrot with its HiFlo™ coating rides very high on the surface and with a carrot orange colour it is very easy to see and follow exactly where your fly is.
The Clear Float has a different approach. It is fully transparent so to minimise the shadow it casts. It floats lower than the Carrot, just about on the surface, so the disturbance during the swing is minimal.
In all, this Vision range of heads offer a tailored solution to pretty much every fishing situation you're likely to encounter. All shooting heads are not the same, these are different... but are they better? We think so, but we'll let you be the judge of that.
