Whether the line will turn over poppers will depend on the taper of the front end (the tip section you add to the skagit head). If the line has a bullet taper where the front mass is carried down the line to the leader junction then the line should turn those flies over fine. A RIO floating MOW tip is great for turning over big flies. A skagit line without a tip will be very clunky. The best lines for this kind of work are the short scandi lines available. A RAGE by Airflo is nice. And if you find that the line lacks the pop to turn over big flies, just whack a foot or so off the tip and try again.

Best,

JM

Hello Master Jeff Mishler. Thank you very much information. Yes, Skagit Master the best in information. Very rich in material for research. I have a Skagit Max 500 grains, I will decrease to 400grains. Poppers and gurglers better a 400grains? Spey rod medium fast action, manufacturer's info.

Hugs!!

Marcelo,

Thanks for taking part of our forum.  It is slow here, but there is a wealth of information if you look back through the many years of content.

Regarding your 400/450 grain question.  The flex of the rod has everything to do with which line you choose.  If the rod is a fast action 7 wt, 450 grains might not be enough for a Skagit head if you plan to fish with sink tips.  450 is a good all around weight for the 7 weight.  I have cast 380 grain lines on 7 weight rated rods and the combo was sweet.  If you are just casting a floating line, you can get away with the 400 grain option.  I would look at the OPST Commando lines.  They are super sweet.  Rio offers a range of Skagit style lines for just about any purpose. 

It's hard to know what to recommend when we know so little about the rod. 

Best of luck

Jeff Mishler

Saw this video on OPST's FB page. I got a chuckle watching it.  This guy is a really good caster too.
