The shooting head systems from NEXTCAST are becoming increasingly popular. Especially among ambitious salmon and steelhead anglers, a true hype has been ignited in recent years around the well though-out shooting heads. We have also learned to love the adapted, user-friendly tapers and let the terrific casting characteristics put a smile on our faces every time. In addition to the very popular two-handed shooting heads and the matching tips and running lines, the extensive collection also includes very successful lines for modern streamer fishing for trout. We especially like the fact that you can definitely find the right line for every casting style and water condition in the Nextcast range.
This line has become Nextcast's absolute top seller in recent years. Why? Quite simply, this line is as universal and user-friendly as a two-handed line can be. Nextcast itself calls this shooting head rather a hybrid between Scandi and Skagit. The power and power transmission of a Skagit with the graceful presentation characteristics of a Scandi shooting head. This is mainly due to the special taper design of the line. Lots of weight in the back of the head, so the rod loads effectively with minimal effort. But more importantly, this line gets you closer and faster to the fish because you have to think less when casting, you save energy and can focus solely on the fly in the water. It doesn't matter which casting style you prefer. Even beefy T-tips can be cast effortlessly due to the efficient energy transfer.
With the Zone3D, Nextcast literally "seamlessly" follows up on the success of the Zone2D by offering a completely connection-free 3D system. These Zone "singlepieces" require no sink tips and work perfectly "out of the box". The seamless transition between sinking rates provides an even cleaner casting feel, allows for more energy transmission and more beautiful presentations. In addition, choosing the right casting weight is even easier, because all the weight to perfectly load the rod is completely contained in the shooting head. No extra tip is needed! But also with the 3D lines it was especially important to Nextcast to deliver the right line for every conceivable situation. From full-floating all the way to sink6/sink8/sink10, everything is covered. From brutal spring fishing with heavy sinkers in cold high water to fine summer fishing with long leaders, everything is covered. Just add a leader and go!
