Rio Scandi Short VersiTip

by Rio

The Scandi Short VersiTip combines the grace of a Scandinavian Head with the power of a Skagit. Excelling with Switch rods and short double-handed rods (up to around 13’ maximum) Scandi Short VersiTip delivers easy casting, even when space is very tight. Supremely versatile thanks to the four interchangeable 10’ tips, supplied in a mesh wallet. (Floating, Clear Intermediate, Type 3 Sink, Type 6 Sink) In order to match for use with a single handed rod, simply choose 3 sizes smaller than your rod’s AFTM rating. i.e. For a 10’ 8 weight single handed rod, choose #5

  • Easy loading design helps anglers make long, effortless casts
  • 33ft head (inc. tip) is the perfect length for rods 13’ and less
  • Includes a balanced set of four tips
  • Running Line required

Welded Loops

RIO was the first company to manufacture all its premium lines with a neat welded loop in the front end. Due to popular demand, RIO now also puts a welded loop in the back end of each premium trout, specialty and saltwater line. There is no quicker way to rig a fly line than to tie the backing to a loop with an improved clinch knot (or by using a large loop in the backing – allowing lines to be switched quickly) and the new rear welded loops from RIO allow an angler to do just that. Never before has it been so easy or fast to rig a new fly line to a reel and get out fishing!

Extreme Slickness

EVERY FLY FISHERMAN IS LOOKING FOR A SLICKER LINE. And for good reason – slicker line means longer casts, more control and less wear and tear from abrasion and the accumulation of grime. XS Technology all began when RIO’s Labcoats began reformulating conventional chemical compounds and material combinations. Although RIO’s formulas continually exceed all others, our scientists are fly fisher people, and by definition they want an even slicker fly line, it’s just part of the deal. So first, they tackled the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) coating and through intense scrutiny down to the polymeric mix level, they defined some fundamental limitations. Out went the old PVC / silicone formula combinations and, after many hours spent both in the lab and on the water, a new proprietory coating was developed. With our new XS Technology, RIO has developed a fly line that is slicker, more stable, and far less apt to attract dirt, and paired with our AgentX Technology, it engineers a line that is far less dense. These new fly lines with XS Technology cast further and more accurately, float higher, last longer, and offer more consistent performance cast after cast, strike after strike, fish after fish. Try one and feel the difference.



For more than 20 years now, RIO has delivered on their promise for passion and innovation in fly fishing, with a pure love of the sport and some of the industry’s highest performance fly lines. Originally founded in the mountains of Idaho in 1990, they continue to research, design and refine their products so that they remain your go-to choice of line for many years to come.

With welded loops, extreme slickness and supreme versatility just being a few of the inherent qualities within RIO’s range of Gold, Perception and Scandi Short fly lines, the pay-off of literally thousands of hours spent on the water is allowing you the pleasure of throwing the highest performance fly lines around.
