Hi, I have a couple of Rio versi tip kits which are great but circa £140, is the scandi shooting head (circa £55) the same line but without the tips?

Thanks NEbody,

So it's the same length and weight as the versitip body and floating tip combined?

You need to tread carefully here, because Rio sell both the Scandi Body, which at #9 is only 23' long and requires a 15" VersiTip to complete the line system (38'); and the Scandi Shooting Head, which at 38' is the full length head, and as NEBody notes, the same length and weight as the VersiTip line with floating tip attached.

Make sure that you aren't just buying the Body version. What makes it doubly confusing is that the Body and Head have the same RRP.

Thanks guys, I think it's the body I need, I have the versitip kit in #9 and #11 , I'm doubling up the #11( because my excellent girlfriend got me a cascapedia for Christmas 😁) so I already have the tips, so I'll just get another body and running line.
