Sunray adjusted tapers.
We change the taper shape & head length as lines get heavier in the AFTM. This is to maintain balance as you cast on different length rods and cast heavier lines. For instance, a #4 rod is usually shorter than a #6. A #7 rod is often 10' long. A #5 is often 9' long. It is critical to maintaining loop shape that tapers are adjusted. Sunray are the only company in the world that do this. We are in effect, making a new line for each weight in a single range. Each weight is handcrafted to deliver the same result whether it's a #4 or a #9.
