Try casting 15’ of lead core on the end of your regular Spey line and you’ll quickly find its not up to the job - enter the Skagit Compact. Skagit lines were originally developed by the Steelhead rats of the Pacific North West to get flies in front of fish regardless of environment. These short high power heads have the ability to make a cast in tight confined spaces, which often means the difference between success and failure.
For the first time, casters could fish heavy tips and present flies deep in the water column, and do so with minimal effort.
Never missing an opportunity to improve perfection, Tom Larimer and the Airflo Design Team are proud to introduce the evolution of Skagit technology with the finest tip tossing shooting-head available today.
The Skagit Compact G2 is the culmination of thousands of hours of design, observation, and field testing. With a slightly shorter overall length, increased rear taper, and manipulation of material densities, the G2 requires less energy to cast, produces tight and precise loops, and possesses the most stable flight characteristics we’ve ever seen.
Using Zone Technology, the back of the head is more buoyant for better tracking and improved mending capability, and the tip features increased density to drive the cast on layout, and reduce hinging at the looped connection with the sink tip. The G2 is built on our low stretch PowerCore for unsurpassed sensitivity, and includes our newest high-float Super-DRI technology.
