It is important to match your sinktip weight and length to the skagit line
for easier pick up off the water. Currently, the rules say that your skagit
line should preferably be 3 - 3 1/2 times the rod length to make the proper
D loop to load the rod.
This rule should be ignored. Today's smaller
heads can easily be casted on longer rods by simply using a more
compact casting stroke.
The longer head just prevents you from "pulling
the anchor
" With smaller rods, length as well as weight of the sinktip needs
to be taken into consideration.  One general rule is that the weight of the
sinktip should be 50% or less of the weight of the skagit head. Even if you
follow this weight formula, a 25' head is not going to lift a 15ft. sinktip
easily! The chart below simplifies things. Keep in mind that casting huge
intruders is going to require at least a 9 or 10wt. rod.
We are proud of our reputation when it comes to understanding and
setting up a two handed rod. Whether it be spey,scandi, skagit or
overhead casting, we are constantly experimenting with the new lines.
When you deal with us, you can be sure that the rod will be set up to do
what you need it to do. No guesswork here! We also do not trust line
recommendation charts as the company couldn't possibly have casted all
of the lines available today.
