The OPST Pure Skagit Commando Heads are the most innovative Skagit shooting heads on the market, with an efficient, easy casting design and size ranges that are suitable for traditional Spey rods, optimised for shorter switch rods and single handed fly rods.

These shooting heads are designed around the SAS, Sustained Anchor Systemology, concept. This is the idea that the Skagit cast is a water-based cast, with the rod load coming from the tension between the water's surface and the line. As such, a sustained anchor cast, where the fly remains stationary until the final power stroke, is the most efficient form of casting.

With these shooting head lines being much shorter in length, they perform exceptionally well, providing an effortless casting feel and are great for restricted casting areas. With the short design they also cast well in windy environments.

The Commando Heads will excel and perform incredibly on conventional two handed Spey rods but will also work well with shorter switch rods from 10ft to 12ft. The Micro Command Series are the smaller sizes in the range, designed to suit single handed rods.

OPST utilised the two handed casting theory, traditionally associated with steelhead and salmon, and applied it to the micro end of the spectrum. So now you can Skagit cast and swing flies for everything from trout, sea trout and smaller salmon/grilse, with rods as light as a 3 weight and as short as 6ft.

The OPST Pure Skagit Commando Heads feature welded loops on both ends for fast rigging and the front end is the end with a printed line I.D marker. These heads are in a Sauk Blue colour and are available in a variety of weight grain sizes for you to choose from.

OPST Commando
perfect, opened up a lot of new waters for me Review by Robin (Created 21/04/2018)
So much fun to Cast
I originally bought one from OPST in the US and payed crazy shipping, I wanted to be able to fish wild scottish lochs with out having to back cast because of high banks or heather etc. It worked a treat, I've been raving about these for ages and I'm glad Anging Active had decided to stock them, I have used the 175gr on my 7' #4 to fish streamers on small rivers and will get the 150gr when i get a 7' #3 glass rod. The 175gr works brilliantly on my New Reddington Hydrogen 11' #2. I have the 200gr which is great on my 8'6" #6 Glass rod and eventually I'm gonna buy one for my Salmon Rod. The only issue is that the 12' sink tips are to heavy for the 175gr head so I have been using the Airflo 5' salmon sink tip set. which work fine but when AA stock the 5' opst tips I'll be getting a set Review by Neil (Created 14/02/2018)
