Personally find running lines fitted with shooting-heads less tiring when covering water with limited backcasting room. Notice that Rio offering relatively short shooting heads (12-15 ft). Questions: Are tips needed with these heads? Do these relatively short shooting heads offer enough "anchor" to effectively load shorter rods? What other running line-shooting line combinations recommended by readers who also like to shoot casts from tight banks. Will be using floating and intermediate heads on Loop Green 13' 2" 9 wt. Thanks in advance for any help given.
