I agree with Terry about not factoring in the tip weight to the overall head weight for a Skagit set up. It definitely does make a difference if you are adding weighted poly leaders to a Scandi line, and using touch and go casts. I know I went through a bit of a learning curve on this stuff: mostly it started at the fly, trying to cast too big and too heavy a fly! Because of the size of the fly, I opted for heavier tips, which meant a heavier head, which meant I needed a 7 or 8 weight rod... etc, etc, etc. Those setups do see some use still in the winter on the coast, but if anything I’ve been enjoying my casting and fishing immensely more as I have continued to drop fly size and weight, along with tip and line and rod weight. Food for thought... be careful how far down the rabbit hole you go!
