SA Spey Lite Skagit Head Intermediate
Designed for light double-handed duty and with a short, powerful taper, the Lite Skagit Intermediate is ideal for smaller streams and trout Spey applications when getting just below the surface is paramount. Available in grain weights from 150-420, this two-colored shooting head features a black marker at the end of the head that serves as a visible notification on where to begin your cast. Works perfectly with SA's SONAR Sinking Leaders and textured TC Tips. From dredging for steelhead to swinging streamers for trout, the Skagit Lite is Spey on a smaller scale.

SCIENTIFIC ANGLERS LINE IDENTIFICATION (SA•ID)
As a result of our lab's mission to continually improve our lines, we bring you SA ID. SA ID is an innovative line marking system allowing you to identify your lines at a glance. Wonder if a shooting head is 200 grain or a 300? Just look at the SAID.
ADVANCED SHOOTING TECHNOLOGY
Scientific Anglers’ patented dry-slick technology provides continual line slickness, allowing the line to shoot farther as it moves through the guides. Lines with AST easily shed dirt, algae, and other parasitic drag particles, allowing lines to cast farther, float higher, and stay cleaner than traditional lines.
Exceptionally slick and strong, SA's welded Streamlined Loops produce smoother casts and easier turnover with a seamless fly-line-to-loop transition making for softer landings and cleaner pickups.
For every one fish eating on top, there are ten feeding beneath it. SA's SONAR sinking technology takes flies to where the fish are: beneath the surface. Using proprietary tungsten formulations and unique tapering, the SONAR sinking technology gets flies down, and keeps them there.
