OPST – Pure Skagit Pink & Green Lazar Shooting/ Running Line:
OPST – Pure Skagit Pink & Green Lazar Shooting/ Running Line is the slickest running line out there. This is the line for those of us who love to launch a cast, sit back, maybe eat a sandwich while the line rushes out of the guides and pulls line off the reel as it comes tight. Lazar Line is hydrophobic, extremely durable, consistent over a broad range of temperatures, and virtually impervious to memory. It features a slight, calculated stretch that allows for extremely sleek and strong knots. Don’t like Skagit casting? This stuff will rock with your Scandi head as well. We searched far and wide for the perfect running line and knew we could do better than what was out there. Take your casting enjoyment to a whole new level with Pure Skagit Lazar Line!
OPST – Pure Skagit Pink & Green Lazar Shooting / Running Line:
- Comes in 25, 30, 35, 40, or 50 lb test (Note 25# only available in Green);
- 50 Meters;
- Exceptional durability;
- Consistent performance in hot and cold;

- Ties beautiful knots;
- Calculated stretch – High knot strength.
NOTE: With all mono running lines, irritating coiling can occur. This is caused from spinning introduced in the casting, by a spinning fly, or more commonly, when the line is loaded onto the reel. Here are some causes and explanations:
COILY FLY LINES: If your fly line comes off the reel looking like a slinky, then it may corkscrew enough in the water to twist up the running line. One should be particularly mindful of coily flylines during periods of cold weather and especially if the flyline is Polyurethane based. The “fix” is to stretch the flyline out just prior to using it, to remove the slinky effect.
SPINNING FLIES: Fly patterns tied “in the round” create more twist onto the line system than do flies tied with a “keel” (ie flies with heavier eyes that ride consistently the same way in the current).
CASTING: Spey-type casts, being as “curvy” as they are, inherently produce some “natural” twisting action. Also, some conditions of casting seem to produce more line twist than others. Shorter types of flylines seem to twist more readily than do longer ones. Large amounts of continuous, short casts of the same type, such as doing 30 right shoulder Snap T-‘s with only the head and 5’ of runner, can twist up a line system fairly quickly. The “while fishing fix” is to mix up one’s casts so that the direction of twist isn’t constant. In other words, instead of 30 right shoulder Snaps in a row, do 3 right shoulder Snaps, then change up to 3 left shoulder casts of some type.
INCORRECT INSTALLATION: Incorrectly spooling a runner can be a major source of line twist. The correct way is… reel and runner spool are aligned in-line with one another. In other words, as if viewing a car from above, if the reel is the right rear tire, then the runner spool needs to be the right front tire. Once the reel and runner spool alignment is correct, then the line needs to be feeding from off the BOTTOM of the running line spool and then into the bottom of the fly reel. IF THE LINE FEEDS FROM THE TOP of the runner spool, to the bottom of the fly reel, then expect major line twist to occur!
