New Products: RIO's Steelhead Scandi Shooting Heads

October 1, 2010 By: Marshall Cutchin

RIO‘s new shooting heads are designed with shorter overall lengths ((between 31 ft and 34 ft) in order to accommodate the growing number of Spey casters using switch rods and shorter two-handers. Designed by guide John Hazel, the Steelhead Scandi Shooting Head is an ivory-colored floating head that comes in sizes from 310 grain through 550 grains and costs $49.95.
“For the ultimate in butter-smooth casting, tight loops and a head that loads quicker and deeper with modern steelhead rods, we created the Steelhead Scandi Shooting Head,” comments RIO’s Simon Gawesworth. “These floating heads are perfect for 11 to 13 foot rods and come in nine sizes to cover a large range of needs.”
