The Scandi Launch is an all-new series of high-performance shooting heads designed to maximise the fun of fishing small flies on floating lines. Each size has been meticulously tuned for two criteria. First, a unique series of steps in the taper concentrates weight at the back of the head, putting more weight in the D loop and making it easy to load the rod. Second, each head's front taper and tip diameters have been selected to turn over delicately for the most graceful presentations. Whether fishing a tapered nylon leader or a slightly heavier VersiLeader, the Scandi Launch delivers flies quietly and efficiently. Fishing “fine and far off” has been the aspiration of two-handed anglers for decades, and the Scandi Launch makes it more fun than ever. A shooting line is required to make this head fishable.
