Opst Pure Skagit Commando Head

OPST's Commando Heads are the result of decades of focus on sustained anchor systemology (SAS) by Ed Ward and Jerry French. They are designed to expand the capabilities of shorter spey rods, switch rods and single hand rods beyond that of normal. You may be surprised at their short length, but this was no accident. The ultra-short design provides an effortless casting feel and enhances performance in circumstances of restricted casting room, troublesome winds and in casting bulky flies. It also makes them more fishable than longer lines that are hard to control on the water. Wanna roll cast? Underhand? Nymph? Single hand Skagit with a haul? Overhead? Go right ahead. You have never cast a line like the Commando.

We recommend using them with Polyleaders. Up to 300 grain, 5 ft or 7 ft normally is enough and for 300 grains and above use at least 10 ft for smooth casting.

Details:

  • Ultra short skagit head
  • Loops on both ends
  • Weight-identification printed onto the loop
  • Colour: sauk blue
