About the Shakespeare Oracle Scandi Fly Rod
The Shakespeare Oracle Scandi fly rod is now one of the most popular double handed rods. Sporting a middle to tip action, the Scandi is the faster action rod in the Oracle family designed for what the name implies, Scandinavian style casting.
For those not sure what the Scandi style of casting is, then think short, quick movements. Touch & go is a quote often referred to describing the action of Scandi casting. This style requires a stiffer/fast action rod and this is what is offered in this Scandi rod.
The Oracle Scandi features subtle black and green shimmer throughout the blanks and subtle purple highlights. Featured above the handle is a practical hook keeper ring avoiding any damage of the cork.
Comparing the sibling Oracle Spey rod and the Scandi rod together there is a clear difference where the curve is just above the handle in the Spey and mid-rod with the Scandi. This is discovered with the good old fashioned 'waggle test’. Scandi/Shooting Heads are the best compatible lines for the Scandi rods though Spey lines can be used and we would suggest following these guidelines:
Ideal Spey head weight:
#8/9 - 44g / 52ft
#9/10 - 48g / 56ft
