The original OPST Commando Head changed the game for trout spey and single hand Skagit tactics. But for streamer, dry fly and nymph fishing, where you often fish at close range and strip flies right up to the rod tip, we knew we could improve it. Enter the Commando Smooth!
A Commando Head and a thin, slick coated running line integrated into one with a smooth, gradual taper. No longer will you feel a bump as the running line/Commando Head junction enters the guides. You won't feel anything at all, except a jarring strike as a fish attacks your streamer. We listened to the requests of numerous Commando Head fans, and created a line that fishes even better than the original. The Commando Smooth is designed to be used with our Micro Tips and Commando Floating Tips, from 5 to 10 feet long. The running line is orange to provide a nice contrast against the Sauk Blue head.
- Length: 99.3 feet.
- Head weights: 150, 175, 200, 225, 250, 275, 300 grains.
- *THIS CHART IS A GENERAL GUIDELINE - Most anglers will find that our line weight recommendations are spot on the new to intermediate spey casters.
- *Experienced casters will usually be 25-50gr lighter than stated in the chart.
- Single handed 7, 8 and 9wt rods will probably like the 10' RIO Replacement tips better than either the 5' 40gr OPST Micro tips or the OSPT 12' 96gr tips.
