Fs: Airflo fist heads

The New Airflo Skagit F.I.S.T stands for Float, Intermediate, Sink Tip. This is a Skagit head with a floating back section for mending and line control, followed by a intermediate mid section to break through the surface current and then a short type 3 sink tip to attach additional sink tips to. Add 10 feet of T-10 or your personal favorite to fish slower in the swing. The triple density construction makes it fish deeper and slower so that you have a near perfect straight line from the fly to the rod tip. This line will be perfect for fishing for Chinooks in Alaska or BC, or Steelhead throughout the Pacific North West.

Grain weights 450/480/510/540/570/600/630/660/720. Use 30g less than normal skagit.

On sale at $49.99 USD shipped free in USA/CANADA

Thanks

What grains do you have? Looking to pair with a 7134-4 Burkie and add on a 10 or 12.5' tip.

Why use a head that is 30 grains less than you would normally use?

I would think it would come from the intermediate section effectively adding gr weight to the line by increasing the action of the anchor

The 510 fist is nice on that 7134-4. The 540 is good too but it’s a bit easier to get the line out of the water w the 510. When I called Burkheimer the guy I talked too said the guys in the shop were evenly split over which was the best.

Ps I bet Airflo says 30 grains less for the same reason I mentioned. You can / should use a less dense tip than you are using with a floater this puppy gets down. 10’ of type III or T7 makes a lot of sense. 12’ of T 11 for dredging deep holes. A 10’ intermediate tip would not be a bad choice for a lot of conditions too.
