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.
