Micro Skagit Commando Head Tips with Ed Ward

OPST SINK TIPS

Our Commando sink tips come in 5, 7.5, 10, and 12 foot lengths. Within each length and grain weight, they come in three different sink rates, which we call Riffle, Run and Bucket, for shallow, medium depth and deep water. The exact sink rates within those three categories will vary based on length and grain weight, so not all Bucket tips are the same across grain weights, but the three sink rate within each grain weight system is a constant throughout our sink tips. This means that you can get a deeper-sinking tip or a shallower tip with the same tip grain weight, so you don’t have to change your cast to fish different depths of water. For example, all of our 5 Foot Micro Tips—the Riffle, Run, and Bucket, all weigh the same, even though there are three different sink rates, or densities.

5 FOOT MICRO TIPS

On the short end of the spectrum are our 5 foot Micro Tips. These 40 grain tips come in S2, S4, and S6, for Riffle, Run and Bucket. These tips are for true micro applications, rods under 9 feet long. That being said, we have used them with good results on 10 foot rods. But most users will find that these tips work best on 6 to 9 foot rods. These tips work best on rods from 2-weight to about a 6-weight, or about a 150 grain to a 225 grain Commando Head.
