The Skagit Compact G3 design is the culmination of thousands of hours of observation, and field testing. This newest iteration of Skagit Compact rides lower in the water, helping to better load the rod during the cast. The unique density slows the swing down, improves casting efficiency, keeping you connected to your fly through the entire step, cast, swing ritual. Skagit Compact G3 Heads are available in 30 grain increments, beginning at 360 grains (for a 4/5 rod) and increasing to 720 grains (10 weight). They easily toss heavily weighted flies when connected to a short leader and attached to anywhere from 5´ to 15´ of tungsten.
