Airflo Skagit Compact Issues
Used an Airflo Skagit Compact for the first time today. Used it on my switch on a stillwater, fishing under an indicator, and had a couple issues.
First - the back loop on the line is so thick and stiff that even with a nice loop to loop connection to my Rio
running line, I had trouble getting the line through the guides. I know how to create a loop to loop connection, but the back of the head kept getting caught on the guides.
Second - in temperatures just above freezing, the line coiled up like a slinky despite many attempts to stretch it out. It was bad enough the it made hook sets very difficult.
My current thought is to replace it with a Rio
head, anyone have any suggestions?
