Going to OBX in a month. I have a 9 wt and intermediate line. It did not get down quickly enough in the surf. Will a shooting head help? Attach to fly line and then tippet to the shooting head?

Question
What type of loops are on the heads as well as the running line?
I assume both ends of the heads have loops - are they braided?

Second what type of loop is on the running line - braided?

Thanks for helping.

Hi, this is Matt from Orvis Technical, I noticed no one had answered your question but here is the information you were looking for:

Both ends of the shooting heads do have loops. The loops on the shooting heads and the loop on the running line are all welded loops.

Question
Published head grain weights?
Are these heads weighted for their particular line class? For instance, are the 8wt heads around 210 grains, or are they over-lined?
I haven't been able to find any additional information on this. I have a couple of switch rods I need to match up grain weights with and would like some more information. Thanks!

Question
Is the shooting head set already "uplined" by 2 line weights?
I have an Orvis Access 9 wt tip flex rod. I am exploring the options of a shooting line/head setup for fishing the MD, DE, and NJ surf. It is normal to "upline" 2 line sizes (in this case - up to an 11 wt head) over the rod's normal line size when using shooting heads provided you have a fast action (tip flex) rod. Do I need to do this with this (order 2 sizes up) setup or is it already "uplined" by two line weights for me?

Thanks
