Rio Scandi
Rio Scandi
Our Price: $54.95

The RIO Scandi head is a very easy casting Scandi style shooting head, built on RIO’s ultra-low stretch ConnectCore for the utmost in casting control and sensitivity. It is available in a multitude of lengths and weights to cover all rod and angling situations. For tight casting spots and the utmost in ease of casting use a head length that is between 2.5 and 3 times the length of the rod, thus a 12 ft rod would work best with a head that is between 30 and 36 ft in length. The shorter the head length, the tighter the back casting space an angler can fish in. With more room and better casting skills a longer head provides the angler with less line to strip in between each cast and more fishing time.
Airflo Skagit Switch
Airflo Skagit Switch
Our Price: $54.99

The need had become blatantly obvious--a shorter head to match the now extremely popular Switch rods. But the "right" line to match these versatile tools had been unavailable, until now. The new Skagit Switch line hits the mark dead on. Shorter in length than our Skagit Compact, this new addition to the Skagit group of lines vary from 18' to 20' with 7 sizes ranging from 360 to 540 grains. Designed to load fast action switch rods in tight casting situations, move 10' to 12' of sink tip, and reach out to hit the "zone". Looped at both ends for ease of use, the front loop has the line size clearly marked for easy identification. The Mint Green color keeps the line visible and controllable at any distance.
OPST Commando Head
OPST Commando Head
Our Price: $54.99

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.
Beulah Elixir Scandi Head
Beulah Elixir Scandi Head
Our Price: $54.99

The Beulah Elixir V2 is our compact Scandinavian style shooting head. Designed for Spey casting surface, and light sinking poly tips on switch and spey rods.

When fishing tight quarters or open gravel bars Elixir’s are a joy to cast from your first six foot line dump at the top of a run to 80′+ lasers when distance is necessary! Beulah Elixir will handle your dry line, light, and moderate sink tip needs for all spring, summer and early fall spey excursions.

The power of the Elixir line is generated by the concentration of weight in the rear third of the taper (closest to running line). The front two thirds rapidly taper down to a fine front taper, dissipating the initial surge of energy into a tight loop with excellent control. The Elixir is designed with a large enough tip diameter to turn over poly leaders and modest size flies with ease. The Elixir Switch will handle poly leader tips 10′-11′ ( up to 90 grains max). For Spey Elixir use poly leader tips 12-14’, (up to 120 grains).With Scandinavian heads like the Beulah Elixir, a leader formula of 1.5 x rod length, including poly leader and tippet, will make a well balanced system.
