I have a peach coloured line approx 32' long that weighs in at 650g, it looks like an Airflo line. It seems too heavy for a scandi does anybody have a clue.
Thanks in advance.

My first thought was the old airflo NW 2 hand skagit head, the length is about right. Then I checked my old one and it's more of a yellow color than peach and I think it was more like 34 feet in that grain weight range. You should remember that the early skagit heads were a lot longer than they are now, so if the line seems to have a skagit type taper but a Scandi length it is probably an older skagit head.

I'd say the airflo northwest Skagit as well. Mine is more peach color and 33' with a black loop at the back end.

I think it's an Airflo Skagit NW head too. From their 2009 catalog: a 650 grain, ST9/10 (the heaviest listed), "pale peach". They don't list lengths, but my two Skagit NW heads are similar length. Good heads, just a little more delicate than shorter "beer can" skagit heads.

Keep your old line catalogs, because questions like this keep coming up.
