Finally got out to test the OPST 250gr with a 5/5 t8 iMow tip and it obviously doesn't feel heavy at all. I was getting close to the casts I was looking for. It was quite alright, nothing special but nothing negative to say either. Pretty good! After fishing the OPST for awhile, I decided to switch back to the 360gr skagit scout with a t8 mow tip and compare the two. I still believe the 360gr is too heavy but I started to prefer the Scout over the OPST after figuring out the casting stroke and slowing down just a tad. The one thing to keep in mind with these shorter heads, is to keep your casting stroke and sweep nice and compact as not to blow your anchor. Overall, it's really up to the angler. I'd be curious to try it with a 330gr scout.
