Description

MICRO SKAGIT – OPST TWO-HANDED RODS

OPST is proud to release its very own line of Micro Skagit and Pure Skagit Two-Handed Rods. It includes six rods in total. Ranging from a 9’9” 3wt up to an 11’6” 8wt. This line-up is classified by design differences, into two categories: Micro Skagit and Pure Skagit rods. Skagit Legend Ed Ward designed these rods. In order for the taper to represent Ed’s concept, OPST & Ed developed and tested over five years. They represent decades of dedication purely to sustained-anchor two-handed casting.  A rod reflects its designer, and these rods are a true illustration of Ed’s vision.

The Micro Skagit category consists of three rods rated to cast 275-grain heads or lower. Their tapers have been designed to pleasantly accommodate both single-handed Spey/Skagit-type casts and two-handed Spey/Skagit-type casts.  Whether you’re picking apart small to medium-sized rivers on foot swinging soft hackles, throwing big streamers into the bank from a boat, or busting big bushy salmon flies into the teeth of an afternoon breeze, these nifty little hybrid rods should have a permanent place in your quiver. The 9’9” 3wt and 10’4wt both have cigar-style single-welled upper grips and switch-style lower handles. The 10’ 4” 5wt has a grip/handle configuration like the Pure Skagit Rod style outlined in the next section.
