RIO Scandi Short VersiTip


RIO's Scandi Short VersiTip is a highly versatile, interchangeable tip Scandi style shooting head, that allows anglers to change tips quickly and easily as fishing conditions change. It is ideal for the travelling angler, so that they can travel light, yet be prepared for any condition.The package includes a 23ft floating Scandi body and four, 10ft long interchangeable tips, making a total head length of 33ft. The included tips in each package are floating, intermediate, type 3 and type 6 DC sink.

The package does not include a shooting line, so anglers will need to purchase a shooting line before this can be used. RIO recommends GripShooter for maximum distance, or ConnectCore shooting line for the very best in hook sets and fishability.

This Scandi VersiTip is ideal for rods of less than 13ft, and is available in #3 to #9. All tips, and the body are built on RIO's ultra-low stretch ConnectCore for the very best in control and sensitivity.

Anglers can buy spare 10ft tips here, or the longer 15ft tips for wider rivers and longer rods here. In addition, replacement Scandi bodies can be found here.
