Rio Products - Scandinavian AFS Head - Flaoting Fly Lines
AN EASY CASTING SHOOTING HEAD designed for effortless distance and great presentation
• Easy loading design helps anglers make long, effortless casts
• Long, fine front taper generates tight loops that unroll with great presentation
• Printed ID system for easy recognition
• Attach the rear easy ID Loop to the shooting line
• Use VersiLeaders / Tapered leaders for best performance (see page 49)
RIO’s benchmark AFS (Advanced Flight Spey) heads feature a long tapered Scandinavian design that produces tight loops and long, effortless casts. They are the very best line design for presentation. Many of the original AFS models have now been upgraded to ConnectCore and moved to the Scandi range. However Floating AFS Heads and the AFS kit which includes a matching Powerflex Shooting line and Versileaders are still available.
Please see below for more info on the AFS/Scandi range equivalent lines. All RIO Scandi heads, plus the new InTouch Scandi Outbound integrated line, utilise the famous AFS taper.
- 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.
