Really? Is it really needed?
Yes, apparently so.
..what someone says after they place a letter in a scanner and hit the go button?
trying to cast skagit style with a scandi setup?
Specifically refers to a line system, including skagit head which can have a floating tip added to turn it into a longer scandi head. Toward the bottom of the page here: http://www.meiserflyrods.com/speyshop.php
In relevant part:
Oh gee thanks for the definition. WTF?
This has been done by people for freakin' years. It isn't anything new.
Another useless techno babble bullshit term that basically means jackcrap except to get people to buy something else most don't know how to use or even need.:clown::ray1:
Wow, I didn't know I was Skandit-ing for years! Thought I was just being too lazy to change lines.
I don’t care how you shake it, its still skagit casting. Adding a floating tip to a skagit head is just that, nothing more or less. Jesus H. Christ!!!!
What if I 'touch-n-go' my skagit head? What then?? Employed tecnique defines the cast more so than manufacturers labels. Can't believe I was sucked into posting on another 'opinions' thread :hmmm:
While many folks are using a floating tip with their skagit heads, one aspect of the scandit system that is unique is using different polyleaders off of the floating tip, instead of the usual leader and tippet.
Not saying it's a revolution and I don't need another line system, but I'll pick up a some polyleaders and give it a go.
No.... it is not needed.....
I invented attack style casting....I suggest everyone take note
So technically speaking, WTF difference is there between a "poly leader" and a sink tip, or intermediate, or floating, etc.? Poly leaders ain't T-14, but the bunch I bought are still just sink tips of another color, but not function.
A better question is, "Who cares?"
From what I have seen the few times I looked at them is that they are lighter in the grains/foot department. Now this comes in handy for building my 3wt spey line. My 3wt two hander is a flyweight spey - or- "Fley Rod" to coin a term.
I already have skagit and scandi heads for my rod. I guess its off to buy a skandit head now. If it's new, I need to get one.
fleys are for gheys
Salmo_G, sinking poly leaders are sink tips, no more or less.
