A versatile body that combines Skagit power with Scandi grace.

RIO Scandi Body


The Scandi body is a short body to which a multitude of tips can be attached – it is the most versatile design of all, and blends Skagit power with Scandi grace. It is ideal for anglers that want to travel light, yet have multiple fishing options. To the front end of the body anglers can attach regular 10 ft & 15 ft tips, MOW tips, “T” tips, iMOW tips or VersiLeaders, and with three different body densities to choose from (floating, intermediate and Sink 4), all water conditions are covered.

For an accurate guideline of which tips match best to which body, check out the document “Making sense of RIO’s Spey Offerings” at Spey Central.
