SARACIONE - Rio Products: Scandinavian Lines
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. For tight casting spots and the utmost in ease of casting use a head
length that is between 2.5 and 3 times the length of the rod, thus a 12 ft rod would
work best with a head that is between 30 and 36 ft in length. 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.
For best performance, RIO recommends attaching the following head sizes to these shooting lines sizes:
