Is this a pre looped head at both ends or one of the original uncut ones with just a loop at the tip?

I'm a little confused as you say it's an 8/9 but the weight of over 600 grains would suggest it's either an uncut 9/10 or a pre looped 10/11 wt.

Regards,Tyke.

Hi Thanks But those are not the fullsize 3D shooting heads there called RTG. A toss between scandi and skagit . Iam thinkng like a rage line. but still a great price if I knew more about the lines I might buy some.
The 3D line 58.00 Pounds Sterling. Thanks for the info Tyke.

Cheers

I have a Gaelforce 560 grain F/H/I 3D head 39' long I'll let go for $65. It is rated as 8/9. But, that is Euro rating, so I think it is more like a NA 7/8.

Hi thanks but I thinking it might be to heavy Its for Beulah platinum 13'8" 8wt 510-540 gr for scandi. The one I had in mind 509gr 36ft long, the one you have might be for 9/10 unless it is the type that you custom cut yourself.

Regards

The 3D+ is 36.4 ft long in F/H/S2 #8/9 size, I believe that's as long as they make any of the pre-looped heads. If you want a longer one you'd have to go with one of the uncut ones which aren't looped at the rear end - but I don't think they are available in that density combination.

The short ones are the compact or ultra compact heads.

Regards, Tyke.

I've heard good things about Guideline's 3D's but haven't tried them. I have used Scientific Angler's UST (original 3Ds) and UST shorts (2Ds) as well as Rio's newer scandi 3Ds.
I can say that these were excellent, especially the older 3D USTs as they are textured and dig out smoothly. They're a little harder to find lately, but Rio's offerings are readily available.

I have 4 new SA UST Shorts 7/8 and 8/9, 32.5' and 33.8' respectively in both F/S2 and F/S3 that I can part with, if your interested.
