The XS-Plus XS-Tra Distance lines use a shooting-head profile designed for extreme distance casting with minimal back cast and false casting. There are three lines in the series, Floating, Intermediate, and Fast-Sink, each with a shorter than normal head length of 40ft, 35ft, and 30ft respectively. On all of them, the head has a short back taper for powerful performance onto a continuous, high visibility, fine diameter floating running line for the ultimate “shootability” and visibility to enhance optimum “take” and “strike” reaction.
The overall length of all the lines is 120ft (40 yards) and early trials regularly saw the loop to backing joint, rattling through the rod rings! These lines will benefit people of all casting abilities, exceed the performance using traditional profile lines and help reach those fish that were previously just out of casting range, especially when there may be a limited back-cast available.
