OPST Commando Floating Tips

Thanks to OPST Commando Floating Tips lazer-sharp loops and delicate presentations are now possible with both an  OPST Commando Head or Smooth Line. OPST are known for Skagit, but what some people don’t know is that if you harness the power of a Skagit head, and finish it with a tapered, floating tip, you get something that can be described as “micro Scandi”or “Scandit”.

The lighter Commando Tips in 5, 7.5 and 10 foot lengths match rods from 6 to at least 11 feet long, making them ideal for just about any trout rod you own. Use a straight tippet or tapered trout leaders up to 9 feet long and longer for ultra-delicate presentations.

The slightly heavier SHS (Steelhead Salmon) Commando Floating Tips are available in 7.5, 10, 12 and 14 foot lengths. Designed for heavier single hand rods all the way up to full-length spey rods, they will work on rods at least as long as 14 feet.

All Commando Floating Tips come with welded loop at both ends, and a Tip-ID on the rear end.
