Sinking Shooting Heads

I got a bunch of Rio Shooting Heads a short time ago, all new, trying to raise funds for new rod so clearing out what I can to get the money, so these are going in USD:

*9wt 40ft - 344gr -8.6gr/ft type 6 - been on reel but didn't touch water, left reel in truck...$15

*7wt 40ft - 252gr - 6.3gr/ft type 6 - $15

*9wt 40ft - 344gr - 8.6gr/ft type 3 - $15

*8wt 40ft - 288gr - 7.2gr/ft type 6 - $15

*11wt 40ft - 444gr - 11.1gr/ft type 6 - $15

*12wt 40ft - 504gr - 12.6gr/ft type 3 - $15

*Mystery line - refer thread in tackle section...is it a DT line, airflo traditional or a RIO as boxed...$10

Prefer to sell combined...so the LOT for $80

Heads

What kind of heads would these be? I guess I'm not familiar with Rio having 40' shooting heads...are these older heads or? Curious...

Thanks!

I think those 40' heads must have been lines available in Canada, not USA?
