Every good 2-hand Skagit head caster I know casts with 3"-8" of running line out the rod tip unless he is making very short casts that are less than the Skagit head's length. In other words, you want a little running line out the rod tip, but not enough to make the line feel "squirrelly" when cast to maximize casting efficiency.
