Lines – Airflow Skagit Scout and Rio Switch
We chose the Airflow Skagit Scout 360 grain as the best all around swinging line for the trout spey rods. The Scout has a shorter head than most skagit lines, and works well with the shorter trout spey rods tested here in the shootout. The coatings on these lines are very good and we have yet to have any problems with them delaminating or separating from the line like the Airflow Ridge lines sometimes do over time. The wasabi green color is easy to see on the water, which makes adjusting your swing easy and fun. The Skagit Scout is now marketed on Airflow’s website as a line for either one-handed or two-hand spey rods.
