RIO's InTouch Scandi 3D shooting heads are multi-density "Scandinavian" style shooting heads, designed for two handed Spey rods. The heads seamlessly integrate three different densities along the length of a single head, that cuts through wind and current, and let you swing the fly deep without snagging bottom when the current slows. We build these lines around our ultra-low-stretch ConnectCore for enhanced sensitivity, easier mends, and faster hook sets. There are three different density combination options for the angler:
Floating/Hover/Intermediate: The ideal head for swinging flies in the top three feet of the water column. The floating back portion makes mending and pickups easy, while the hover midsection and intermediate tip keeps the fly fishing below the surface.
Hover/Intermediate/Sink 3: This head is built for deeper presentations or heavier currents, swinging the fly, on average, two to five feet below the surface. The Hover back section allows for easy casting and line control, while the intermediate mid-section and Sink 3 tip hold the fly at fish level.
Intermediate/Sink 3/Sink 5: When you really have to get down to the fish, this is the fastest sinking, deepest-fishing head we make. It swings the fly, on average, between four and 10 feet deep, and yet the graduated density still allows for outstanding line control and easy casting.
