Two hand anglers that need to get sink tips delivered to bouldery runs with minimal back cast runs have chosen the Skagit style as their go-to. Despite extra short and other more specialized Skagit style lines coming on to the scene, the Skagit Compact is still the standard.
The Skagit Compact G2 is the culmination of thousands of hours of design, observation, and field testing. With a slightly shorter overall length than previous generations, increased rear taper, and manipulation of material densities, the G2 requires less energy to cast, produces tight and precise loops, and possesses the most stable flight characteristics we’ve ever seen in a Skagit head.
Using Zone Technology, the back of the head is more buoyant for better tracking and improved mending capability, and the tip features increased density to drive the cast on layout, and reduce hinging at the looped connection with the sink tip. The G2 is built on Airflo’s low stretch PowerCore for unsurpassed sensitivity, and includes their newest high-float Super-DRI technology.
