Rio Products - Scandi Body
A VERSATILE BODY that combines Skagit power with Scandi grace
• Multi-purpose design, casts like a Scandi or a Skagit Printed ID system on the rear of the head for quick recognition
• Loops on both ends for fast rigging
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 Versi-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.
- Easy ID Loops
- Front Loop
- Back Loop

AFS Vs Scandi: Whats the difference?
RIO Scandi was born to take advantage of the new Rio Connect Core technology and bring all of the options needed for Scandinavian style fishing into one family.
In profile Scandi lines are the same as AFS, if you have the same weight and length they should feel and perform just the same, you may experience a slight increase in casting 'feel' or perceived weight of the line as less of the energy put into a cast is lost with ConnectCore.
The advantage of ConnectCore in Spey casting is measurable - in overhead casting it's even greater. ConnectCore's sensitivity to feel gentle takes and your ability to set the hook when you choose is improved. It is also easier to stay in direct contact with fast moving fish so everything is improved.
- Better casting
- Feel takes earlier
- Set the hook more often
- Stay in control during the flight
There are now more options than before for shorter rods, tighter spaces, or for asking a line weight do slightly heavier work for you. These lines are called Short Scandi.
