A good friend received quite a few of these heads when they first debuted. He strung'em with CF Burkheimer's 11 footers when those where still fresh on the market too. He did quite well fishing in close using tandem tube flies.
I too, am with "just OK" about these. Just not into heads as much and could only think "Royal Wulff Ambush flylines" when I got to cast it a few times.
There is now an "intergrated" Commando version too.
Lot of guys used the Ambush (in heavier weights) with 12 and 13 foot rods in tight spots back them.[/QUOTE]
Never tried the Ambush heads, sounds interesting. I’ve never tried OPST heads in switch rods though either. For what it’s worth, my limited experience is primarily with an Echo TR 12’6” 6wt
You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
