Like I always say, if you want a new rod, just strap on a new line. If you want to Skandit, take a skagit head 50+ gr lighter than your favorite big junk tosser, add a floating tip, back off the gas, and enjoy. For many rods, that's just how simple it is. You can still carry a light sinktip, but you can also do a slo-mo scandi cast with ease. Every rod and caster is different though.
