    I have a 7 weight Ambush I use on a SH rod that I like. So much that I picked up a Meiser 11'-7" 5/6/7 to jump into the 2H game. I got one of the SGS Scandi lines with the rod and am wondering as to what line would suit me best for a 2nd. I don't see myself needing to huck any "chickens" in the near future and the Scandi will probably cover 80-90% of my needs. However, I was thinking an Ambush line in 400-450 grains might be a good alternative to a Scagit head for the times I need to get down or throw something with lead-eyes or weight/bulk. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    Sounds like a good idea to me. Does that scandi you nabbed have a built in running line? If it does I would say nab the ambush. If you have a stand alone running line, then I would probably grab a skagit head so you can just throw it on the runner when needed.

    Blake, the Scandi has the integrated MendMaster running line. I chose it for it's mending capabilities based on Bob's recommendation. The 2nd line will be a head and the Ambush is available that way. With that set-up, I can have the versatility of adding other heads in the future.

    I didn't realize that you could buy the heads. always had the full integrated ambush lines. Time to get out the wallet!

    Poppy's carries them. They also make a Wulff running line that's gotten good reviews.

    Ambush has separate heads for 8 & 9 wts. (according to Gary Sandstrum).
