DetailsNew improved model of the Rio AFS Floating Head, new for the 2014 season. The Rio Scandi is an easy casting shooting head designed for effortless distance and great presentation.
The RIO Scandi head is a very easy casting Scandi style shooting head, built on RIO’s ultra-low stretch ConnectCore for the utmost in casting control and sensitivity. It is available in a multitude of lengths and weights to cover all rod and angling situations.
For tight casting spots and the utmost in ease of casting use a head length that is between 2.5 and 3 times the length of the rod, thus a 12 ft rod would work best with a head that is between 30 and 36 ft in length.
The shorter the head length, the tighter the back casting space an angler can fish in. With more room and better casting skills a longer head provides the angler with less line to strip in between each cast and more fishing time.
Running line or VersiLeader(s) not included. These can be purchased separately to complete your fly line package.

- Liked the Rio range from the start. Complements the skagit max enabling 2 lines to cover my seasons requirements by mixing up with various tips and poly leaders. Liked the welded loops and line ID and suppleness of the line. Review by Steven (Created 02/04/2015)
