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. "Scandi" style heads feature long, fine front tapers that unroll with ease, remain stable and smooth throughout the casting stroke and are very easy, and pleasant to cast.
Designed to perform with modern shorter rods or where back cast room limits your ’D’ Loop - Scandi Compacts come in 11 sizes from the scant 240 grain 29’ #4/5 to its larger brother, the 540 grain 34’ #8/9 enabling you to create a perfectly balanced outfit.
Too often we heard the cry for a line that cast like our Skagit Compact, but fishes as a straight floater. So, working with Tom Larimer, we developed the new Rage Compact. This addition to the Skagit family keeps you in the ’Floating’ game under extremely windy and tight quarter casting situations.
The PowerSpey is for those casters that prefer a longer belly line. A unique taper design makes this an incredibly easy line to spey cast with - at any length - and traditional anglers will love the longer head length for precise fly control and efficient casting.
For the first time, casters could fish heavy tips and present flies deep in the water column, and do so with minimal effort. Never missing an opportunity to improve perfection, Tom Larimer and the Airflo Design Team are proud to introduce the evolution of Skagit technology with the finest tip tossing shooting head available today.
