OPST Line and Rod Selection Chart

*THIS CHART IS A GENERAL GUIDELINE - Most anglers will find that our line weight recommendations are spot on the new to intermediate spey casters. Experienced casters will usually be 25gr lighter than stated in the chart. Single handed 7, 8 and 9wt rods will probably like the 10' Rio Replacement tips better than either the 5' 40gr OPST Micro tips or the OSPT 12' 96gr tips which is why we would like you to comment in the order notes on what rod you are using these on and what tips you would like.
150 - 225 Grain Systems Include:
  • OPST Commando Head (You can Substitute Rio Trout Max, Airflo Scout heads. SA Spey Lite and Wulff Ambush Short fully integrated NEW School heads for the Commando Heads and running line by letting us know in the order notes.)
  • OPST Lazar Line (we will choose the appropriate size for your grain weight) Available in Orange, Pink and Green, Comes in 25, 30, 35, 40, or 50 lb test (Note 25# only available in Green) (Airflo Superdri Ridge and Rio Powermax can also be substituted here by usin gyour order notes.)
  • (2) 40 Grain OPST 5' Micro Sink Tips. You can purchase 12' sink tips separately, but as you learn this cast we encourage you to start with 5' tips or the 7.5' 60gr tips.
    • 5' Riffle Sink Tip Sinks at 2-3 inches per second
    • 5' Bucket Sink Tip Sinks at 6-7 inches per second.
  • (1) 10' RIO Floating Tip (sized to match your rod)

  • OPST Floating tips are now available. Rio 10' Replacement tips will also work here as will Rio MOW Light Tips as long as you are using at least a 5wt rod. Again we like you use the order notes to make sure we get the order right the first time.


    250 - 325 Grain Systems Include:

    *cost is $10 more because this system includes 7.5' 60gr Commando sink tips and RIO Replacement 10' Floating tip. Rio Replacement tips are also very nice with these Commando Heads and can be substituted. Just let us know in the Order notes if you have any personal requests.
    • OPST Commando Head
    • OPST Lazar Line (we will choose the appropriate size for your grain weight)Pink Available in 30# and 40#, Orange available in 40# only.
    • (2) 60gr Grain OPST 7.5'' Sink Tips. You can purchase 12' sink tips separately, but as you learn this cast we encourage you to start with 5' and the Rio Replacement tips and the 7.5' tips.
      • Riffle Sink Tip Sinks at 2-3 inches per second
      • Bucket Sink Tip Sinks at 5-6 inches per second.
    • (1) 10' RIO Floating Tip (sized to match your rod)

    OPST Commando Single Hand Shooting Head System



    This system is perfect for casters that want the advantages of a shooting head system, but don't want the bulk or necessary length and size of a two-handed rod. It is excellent for streamer fishing trout or swinging flies for Steelhead or Salmon. We have even used these for smallmouth!

    Please put in the Notes on your order what rod you are using this OPST System on.
    Good reels for the Mono OPST Lazar running line are pressure cast as manufacturers can make a compound curve. Fully machined reels are incapable of possessing such a curve, HOWEVER, what they lack in curves is fully made up in the quality of machining, consistency and the strength increases gained by milling billet aluminum. For cheap, cast reels, we like the Waterworks-Lamson Liquid and the Redington Zero, Surge, Behemoth and Sage 2200 series reels. For high quality reels we like the Waterworks-Lamson ARX and the GURU HD, as well as the Sage Evoke. They are all tight enough that there is little chance of the mono getting between the frame and the spool. If adding a reel you will also have to specify in the notes which hand you retrieve with.

    Setting Up the OPST Commando and Lazar Line System

    *if you purchase a reel from us, we will set all of this up for you. Just be sure to let us know which hand retrieve you would like in the order comments.
