So, how has it been with the skaters?
It's interesting to see that Sage seems not to have updated the Sage One 4116 with an X model. Why not?
I just ordered the 4116. I see the Scandi Short Versitip 275 is called great for the road by all who have used and written about it.
Regarding OPST, Craig from Red's Flyshop recommends 250 grain with the 4116. He also provided this resource:
Mattias, FKrow, and those of you who have tried, I also have some questions. I am planning to strip and/or swing streamers of 5-7 cm, some of them weighted. Would you recommend MOW tips, or will I get along with the Versitip alone?
Also I wonder, what are you giving up when you use the OPST Skagit setup? I read a lot about what's great about it, but every single thing has disadvantages, too. What are they? Or to put it another way, what does the Scandi Short Versitip setup do better?
For starters, which outfit allows for more distance? I'm fishing the Rhine, so sometimes distance will be important to reach those far-away fish at the edge of the stronger current. And what are other differences between the two setups?
