Commando “Groove” Dual Density Intermediate Commando Heads

Introducing the Commando Groove, OPST’s new Dual-Density Floating/Intermediate Heads.  Featuring the same popular and effective taper designed by Skagit Guru Ed Ward, now in a floating rear third and an intermediate front to really slow down that swing and presentation, along with getting that head and tip under the conflicting surface currents for a more user-friendly swing as well!  Available in Commando Head Sizes ranging from 200 grains all the way up to 475 grains, to cover all your needs on the water.  Same great Commando Heads now in dual density-intermediate to round out your Pure Skagit quiver.  Slide into that slot with the Commando Groove!

Winter is officially here, and it’s time to get serious about getting fully dialed on your winter programs. That means waders need patched, reels need greased, lines need changed, sink tips need switched out, and of course the heavier rods need dusted off! Why not start the season off right with a new OPST Pure Skagit Rod? We have a limited run of our Micro and Pure Skagit Rods available to free up for retail, just in time for the holiday season!

Here we have Todd Scharf, owner of Upstream Adventures, up in British Columbia throwing our 11’6” 8wt Pure Skagit Rod and our New Commando Groove Intermediate Skagit Head. This is a great, super-effective combo for winter steelhead fishing all over the West Coast, and a ton of fun to boot. Just ask Todd, he seems to be enjoying them a bunch! Limited quantities of our whole Micro Skagit and Pure Skagit Rod line-up are available now for purchase for the Holiday’s; send an email to to learn more.
