RIO’s GripShooter is based on the very popular SlickShooter, but has a thick, coated handling section that makes it very easy to grip in cold conditions. The thin nylon shooting line gives caster’s the maximum distance and is light enough to hold off the water at range and allow anglers great control of their head and fly far out in the swing. A neat 8″ welded loop at the front end allows for fast and efficient head changes.
A NOTE ABOUT RETRIEVE: Reels are designated as either left and or right hand retrieve, which simply refers to the hand used for reeling in line. Modern reels convert easily between right or left hand retrieve. However, it is important for an angler to designate how they want the reel set up before the backing and line are spooled onto the reel. Many right-handed casters use left hand retrieve on their reels so they don’t have to switch hands between casting and fighting a fish. Other anglers prefer to use their dominant hand for both casting and reeling, so they switch hands on the rod after a fish is hooked.
