Since the release of the OPST Commando Head, it has been hailed as one of the best shooting heads on the market. But the need to attach it to a running line left it with a clunky junction that looked and felt out of place with the smoothness the head offers. OPST have listened to our cries for an integrated, streamline system and have now solved that problem with the Commando Smooth.
The OPST Commando Smooth is a fully integrated shooting head and thin coated monofilament running line system. The older Commando Head and running line would require a loop to loop connection that would catch on rod eyes. This integrated line has a seamless construction so it would avoid this issue, making it highly beneficial to trout anglers who wish to strip their flies all the way in.
The line is perfect for fishing at close range, especially for trout, and with a super thin 0.635mm diameter, the running line shoots almost as well as monofilament but it floats higher and is much more forgiving and easier to handle.
If it's not broke, don't fix it. The Commando Smooth still uses the same good old Commando head that anglers have grown to love. Instead, this time it includes a seamless connection to the running line, truly putting the smooth into its name.
The OPST Commando Smooth is available in a Sauk Blue / Orange colour and in various grain weights that you can select using our drop-down menu above.
