Two-handed casters take note: RIO has added a new multi-tip kit to the Skagit line series, enabling spey casters to add a type 6 or type 8 sink tip to the regular Skagit line. The kit comes in a wallet, which also contains a “Skagit Cheater” — a 5-foot section of floating line that enables anglers to fine-tune their line system. “The new Skagit VersiTip system is available with a 450 grain, 550 grain, 650 grain or a 750 grain head weight option and has a recommended retail price of $149.95.”

NEW SKAGIT VERSITIP LINE–– COMPLETING THE ULTIMATE SELECTION FOR THE SKAGIT CASTER.
IDAHO FALLS, June 1st, 2007. Following the incredibly successful launch of the Skagit series of fly lines, RIO is pleased to announce the completion of the range.
A new mid-season launch of the Skagit VersiTip® system combines the ever popular Skagit fly line with a wallet of tips for each situation. Each VersiTip line comes with a full Skagit fly line and a shooting head wallet with a 15 ft density compensated Type 6 sink tip (6 inches per second) and a 15 ft density compensated Type 8 sink tip (8 inches per second). In addition there is a 5 ft floating Skagit Cheater that is useful for tuning in the line’s head length to a precise casting style, fishing situation or rod action.
Skagit casting is a style of spey casting that utilizes special short, heavy heads. The casting style encompasses a minimal amount of physical effort by using a compact and consistent casting stroke and is perfect for casting in tight quarters.
The new Skagit VersiTip system is available with a 450 grain, 550 grain, 650 grain or a 750 grain head weight option and has a recommended retail price of $149.95.
