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. The "Short" nature of this head makes it ideal for Spey rods and Switch rods less than 12' 6" in length, and also for fishing in the tightest of situations.
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.
- Easy casting design
- Printed ID system for easy size recognition
- Ultra-low stretch core for the best in casting and fishing sensitivity
- High viz rear loop
Scandi heads are the best line option in tight casting situations and a particularly good choice on smaller rivers, and for novice to average casting skills - particularly when smaller and unweighted flies are used. They are not the right choice of head for windy days, or for casting big flies and fast sinking tips.In these situations a SKAGIT head would be a far better choice.
