Feel. OPST vs Orvis Mission
OPST heads will feel lighter when casting. Most folks who began using heavier heads go through an adjustment period and may tend to find initially over line their rods by 25 grains though eventually dial things back as they adjust.
Mission Heads will be easier for most folks to adopt if they have some prior spey casting experience. They will load deeper into the rod and have an easier time punching through the wind due to the greater weight or grains.
Step 2: Reel
All outfits come with 30lb dacron backing, and all shooting head packages (non-integrated heads) come with 40lb OPST Lazar running line. If you prefer 40lb please shoot us an email prior to ordering.
