Here is what Scientific Anglers has to say about their Spey Lite Skagit Intermediate Heads:

The Scientific Anglers Spey Lite Skagit Intermediate Heads are designed for light double-handed and single handed Spey duty. 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. From dredging for steelhead to swinging streamers for trout, the Skagit Lite is Spey on a smaller scale.

  • Ultra-short head for turning over heavy tips and large, weighted flies with light two-handed rods
  • Standalone head designed to be used with shooting line; ideal for trout Spey applications as well as light steelhead and bass
  • Ultra-short head length works well for casting with limited room behind you
  • Sink Rate: Intermediate = 1.25 ips
  • Braided multifilament core
