Skagit Compact G2Easy-Casting Short Skagit
- For the first time, casters could fish heavy tips and present flies deep in the water column, and do so with minimal effort.
- Never missing an opportunity to improve perfection, Tom Larimer and the Airflo Design Team are proud to introduce the evolution of Skagit technology with the finest tip tossing shooting-head available today.
- The Skagit Compact G2 is the culmination of thousands of hours of design, observation, and field testing. With a slightly shorter overall length, 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.
- 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 our low stretch PowerCore for unsurpassed sensitivity, and includes our newest high-float Super-DRI technology.

Not relying on solvents to make it supple, Polyurethane flexes better and lasts longer than any other material we know. Our new Flexi Loop system incorporates actual fly line core into the loop and with our unique fusing process, creates a seamless weld that really is bullet proof.
Airflo fly line Climate Control – Even though all our lines are made from the same base material, polyurethane, not all of our fly line coatings are the same. In fact, they come in a variety of grades or hardness’s which determine how the line will perform in a variety of temperatures. We select coatings that best suit the environment in which they will be used, each having its own merits and optimum temperature range in which they perform best. To help establish which line you require, we have developed a temperature chart that highlights the working temperature range for each of our lines.
