    As the title says, I'm looking for a 6wt intermediate integrated shooting head line. My preference is an Outbound short, but also a regular Outbound, Airflo 40+, SA Streamer Express). I want a clear head so I'm not interested in the new Airflo 40+.

    I'm also looking for a spare spool for a Sage 2560 reel. Spools from the 4560 will also work.

    Thanks!

    The graphite spools sold for the 4560 fit the 2560 (just bought one), and are something like $75. Great deal.

    Yeah that's what I'm planning on if don't find one here. Figured it was a long shot but added it on with the line. Those composite spools are a great deal though and the main reason I'm keeping the reel (got it used as a combo with the rod I wanted). Thanks!

    Don't buy one of the original OB's with the really thin running line unless you really enjoy undoing tangles. ;)

    I've heard that a lot. By "orginal" do you imply that there has been a new and improved version that is currently available, or do you refer to "original" vs the newer "short" version? I only ask because I have 2 Rio Outbound (non-short) and I don't find I have many problems with the running line getting overly tangled. One I purchased this year (6wt floating) and one I purchased last year (8wt intermediate). I was planning OBS for both my floating and intermediate but I was "sold" on the regular over the short by the shop owner (he sells both).

    By original, I mean the ones with a 37' head when they were first introduced.
    They would cast great, but tangle frequently. It was a love / hate thing with many folks that used them.
    Rio changed the running lines I believe when they came out with the short, so within the past three years or so. They touted the OB Shorts as having a new improved running line which was thicker then the original OB's.
    The new OB's work well.
