    I´m thinking of getting an AirFlo Rage head for my Echo3 switch. Which tips and/or polyleaders have you guys been throwing with the Rage?

    I was fishing the 450gr Rage with Delta 6/7 tips today; 13' @ 80gr Type 7, 3 and Intermediate all cast great if you don't overpower the cast.

    Are these MOW tips...ie. 15' of T-14?

    Or are you guys talking about polyleaders llike the Rio type 6?

    The designer of the Rage, Tom Larimer, recommends a 10' Airflo Poly leader with 2' to 4' of tippet. I use this in an intermediate sink for most of my fishing with the Rage line.

    However as others have noted it will handle light tips just fine. Very versatile line.

    The rage will throw any polyleader. It definitely prefers the 10 footers but in the summer I really like the 14ft floater for small dry flies, the longer leader keeps me from pulling my anchor with the lighter stuff.
