Steve G. has developed a process of incorporating anti-gravitons into line coatings. The weight of the scandit with tip is therefore less than the weight of the skagit head alone. I thought everybody knew this?
Seriously, here are some specs for the scandit system I had done for my Meiser
13' 7/8 MKS (rated grain window 450 to 700 gr). These are rough numbers from memory as I don't have the lines in front of me right now.
Skagit head alone, 530 gr, floating tip, about another 100gr, so about 630 gr for the overall floater.
By comparison, my personal preference for this rod is a skagit head in the 560-580gr range, a scandi head of 480-520gr. Obviously those numbers do not, and cannot, sync up.
Yes, doing touch-and-go casts, going from say a 7/8 AFS (460 gr) directly to the 630 gr scandit floater, it feels a bit weird. Quite deep rod load. But it still can work. OTOH, sustained anchor casts with the floating tip feel quite natural. That is pretty much how I use that system, when I attach a full floating tip, which is not very often.
