The original OPST Commando Head changed the game for trout spey and single hand Skagit tactics. But for streamer, dry fly, and nymph fishing, where you often fish at close range and strip flies right up to the rod tip, we knew we could improve it. Enter the Commando Smooth—a Commando Head and a thin, slick coated running line integrated into one with a smooth, gradual taper. No longer will you feel a bump as the running line/Commando Head junction enters the guides. You won't feel anything at all, except a jarring strike as a fish attacks your streamer. The Commando Smooth is ideal for the trout and bass world, or any other situation where you want to fish your fly all the way in. These are typically used with our Micro Sink and Floating Tips, from 5 to 12 feet long: Perfect for single hand, trout spey, and micro skagit rods. The running line is orange to provide a nice contrast against the Sauk Blue head. If you are looking for a line that can do almost anything, experience the Commando Smooth. It's just like the wildly popular Commando Head. Only smoother.
