Airflo Compact Skagit G2
This is the most recent version of the famous Airflo Skagit Compact shooting heads that emerged about 10-years ago and took their place as one of the most popular Skagit type heads ever produced. The original Skagit Compact is still very popular with many of the worlds most knowledgeable steelhead/salmon anglers and guides. The new G2 (generation two) is a little shorter overall than its predecessor. It has a slightly longer rear taper so that an angler can leave a little more shooting line beyond the rod tip while casting. And because of the of this lengthened rear taper the head is a little more stable in flight. The front taper has also been lengthened slightly to increase flight time and to blend more seamlessly with Airflo's wildly popular Flo Tips. This head is two colored. The rear blue part of the line has more flotation built into it so that it is more controllable while on the water.
Many angler who are familiar with the older version of the Skagit Compact will find it hard to believe that it can be improved upon. These new heads are just beginning to arrive. That is why we only have a small range of sizes. So far our tests have disclosed that the new line performs very well.
