Guideline 3D+ Shooting Heads - NEW

Write a review

Adapting to recent and modern demands, based on Guideline's ground breaking and bestselling Triple-D lines, this new range of lines feature some new, exciting densities and are also pre-looped and ”Ready-To-Go” . They are available in comfortable, manageable lengths and weights that suit most rods and anglers. All 3D+ lines are fitted with small, coated loops with the industry's strongest reinforced sleeves. These lines will provide true 3D performance; both in terms of sink rates and unequalled casting/fishing properties.

There are a total of nine different models in four line weights. Lighter line weights are not available in the fastest sinking densities at this stage. The 3D+ lines are built around Direct Contact low stretch cores with only 6% stretch. Line weights 7/8 and 8/9 feature 32lbs cores, while 9/10 and 10/11 lines have super strong 42lbs cores that will make you fish with confidence targeting huge Baltic- or giant Atlantic Salmon alike. All lines have attractive, new colour combinations and are fitted with both color coded sleeves and ID printing in the back ends for easy identification. Produced from environmentally friendly materials featuring strong Polyurethane coatings.

FLOAT/HOVER/INT | DH - Sink Rate 30 sec./meter 
The Hover/Intermediate density in the first two-thirds of this line will position your fly just below the surface. The floating back portion of the line helps to control fly speed as well as making mending and lift-off a lot easier than with a line that is fully submerged in the water.

FLOAT/HOVER/S2 | DH - Sink Rate 13 sec./meter 
The Float/Hover/Sink2 line covers a very important level of water, just a little deeper than the Float/Hover/Intermediate line while still offering the option to work the floating back part of the line nicely, to control fly angle and speed through the water. A very popular density combination. 

FLOAT/HOVER/S4 | DH - Sink Rate 8 sec./meter The next step down from the Float/Hover/ Sink2. The floating rear section helps the line fish at an angle, the faster sinking front section helps the line achieve greater depth. The floating rear section increases line speed and control when fishing in low flows. Proved to be a great fish catcher during the field testing season 2016.

HOVER/INT/S3 | DH - Sink Rate 10 sec./meter 
Due to the buoyant Hover back end, this line lets you fish your flies in the mid-water column with full control of the speed throughout the swing. The elevated back end will ensure that you can fish your fly to the dangle without annoying mid-line snags as the current speed drops during the end of the swing.

INT/S2/S4 | DH - Sink Rate 8 sec./meter 
Possibly the most popular density in the Triple D-range. A favourite, both for great casting performance, as for the way this line fishes in the water. Offers you that feeling of hitting a depth-zone that puts the fly within perfect reach of an aggressive Salmon or Steelhead in many varied pool structures.

INT/S4/S6 | DH - Sink Rate 5,5 sec./meter 
A new and very interesting density combination with a more aggressive sinking profile than the INT/S2/S4 line. This line is very effective when you fish rivers with deeper holding lies in medium to slower water. The intermediate back half of the line will keep the speed up and make it easy to pull up for the next cast. It also helps eliminating snags in the later part of the drift to, due to the steeper sinking angle of the line.

S1/S3/S5 | DH - Sink Rate 6,5 sec./meter 
Fishing harder, stronger flowing rivers or deeper sections of the river? This line will do the job and get the fly down that bit extra in a medium deep pool. It has also proven itself to be easy to cast, both for accuracy and distance. Should be one of your main lines in the shooting head wallet. 

S2/S4/S6 | DH - Sink Rate 5,5 sec./meter 
Heading into the deep water, the unique Triple Density construction of this line brings the front right down to the fish, while the back end balances nicely and makes it easier manage during cast, fishing and the lift-off from the water. Also partly eliminates snags in the later part of the swing due to the steep sinking angle of the line. One of the coolest sinking lines of all times.

S3/S5/S8 | DH - Sink Rate 4,8 sec./meter 
This is line manufacturing at its best! The slim profile combined with the high density will make this baby sink like a brick. With similar features to the above line, it sinks with a good angle and takes your front down first. It is still manageable to cast, due to the unique taper and balance of the S5/S8 portion in the line.
