Description

Make your own sinking heads with the Cortland Mini-Head Kit! Available in three different sink rates, each kit contains a 12 foot length of sinking line and four braided loop connectors. Simply cut the sinking line to a desired length. Install a loop connector on each end of the sinking line using the loop connectors, and connect all lines using loop-to-loop connections.

These transform any fly line into a sink-tip line, and are a must-have item for traveling anglers.

Works Great   (from prior model)
Comments: Works well for a modest price, at converting floating to sink tip line, even though I already have a complement of shooting heads, full sink, and sink tip lines. Purchased all 3 sink rates (3, 6, 9 ips), and cut sections are conveniently stored in zip lock bags. Used mono to tie my own loops, instead of using the supplied braided loops and sleeves. Takes only a few minutes to swap out pieces to go from floating to various sink rates. Nice to be able to mix/match cut sections to suit conditions, as well as suit various rod/reel/line weight setups. Casting has not been an issue with my 3 wt through 6 wt "freshwater" setups with 7.5 ft leaders. Have not tried on my 7 wt through 9 wt "saltwater" setups. Have since purchased a 2nd set of all 3 sink rates, and added different length sections to round off the original set.

Good product, need better loops   (from prior model)
Pros:
Cons:
Best Uses:
Comments: The sink tip line works great. The only problem I ran into was that the rubber was very difficult to slip over the loop/line connection once the line was fed through the hollow portion of the loop. Need to make the rubber with a bit of a bigger circumference. Notwithstanding this issue, I would have given it a "5" rating.

Cortland Precision Running Line
Cortland Precision Running Line
(2)
One of the biggest problems with shooting head/running line set-ups has been the "hinge" that develops when you connect the two different lines. Not anymore! Cortland has developed the Precision running line which features a small front body that tapers into the rest of the running line eliminating hinging and adding distance to every cast. The front body mates exactly to the rear taper of the Shooting Head for smooth energy transfer, then tapers into the running line section.
