Beulah Elixir V2 Switch Scandi Shooting Head 475gr 31' New

As the description says. Should work well for your 7/8/9 switch or 6/7/8 spey. No tip needed, however, easily turns over poly and moderate fly if you want it to.

$30 shipped to your CONUS door.

From Beulah's website:

The Beulah Elixir V2 is our compact Scandinavian style shooting head. Designed for Spey casting surface, and light sinking poly tips on switch and spey rods.
> Condensed rear taper
> Larger tip diameter improves casting ability in wind and better control of larger flies
> Improved longer front taper for delayed turnover resulting in tighter loops at longer distances
> Improved durability on all factory welded loops
> Laser I.D. on all lines for quick line identification
At Beulah, we believe today’s shorter Switch and Spey rods need condensed spey lines to maximize ease of casting, overall performance and presentation. Elixir lines are designed to be in the range of 2.5 times rod length and excel with all types of spey casts including both sustained anchor load and splash and go techniques. Our Elixir lines are available as head only completed w/ factory welded loops or as fully integrated Switch (110ʹ′ head/running line) and Spey (120ʹ′ head/running line) lines giving you eighteen different options to dial in your spey system.

When fishing tight quarters or open gravel bars Elixir’s are a joy to cast from your first six foot line dump at the top of a run to 80ʹ′+ lasers when distance is necessary! Beulah Elixir will handle your dry line, light, and moderate sink tip needs for all spring, summer and early fall spey excursions.

The power of the Elixir line is generated by the concentration of weight in the rear third of the taper (closest to running line). The front two thirds rapidly taper down to a fine front taper, dissipating the initial surge of energy into a tight loop with excellent control. In other words the rear weighted part of the line propels the front two thirds which rolls out through the leader and turns over the fly. The Elixir is designed with a large enough tip diameter to turn over poly leaders and modest size flies with ease. Depending on casting ability, these lines should handle poly leader tips 10-11ʹ′ or shorter and weight 90 grains max for Switch rods and accommodate flies on the lighter side and up to #1/0 to #2. For Spey Elixir, poly leader tips 12-14’, weight to 120 grains.
