Scandi extra short versatip

Maybe SESVT?
Hit upon an unusual and satisfying head+tip combo on the water and thought I’d put it out there for others to play with:
Rio Scandi Body + 7.5ft OPST tips.
Felt sort of like having a multi tip version of an Airflo Rage. I was on small water with a 10.5ft glass switch rod and it was nice to have the slightly shorter head but still more delicacy than a full Skagit. I was using the 400gr RIO body.

Obviously not claiming this is any kind of revolutionary concept, just that it worked well for me.

I thought the same thing using the 4 weight kit on a 4 weight Hydrogen.

I just put the 400 grain scandi body on my 6130 Mod with a 15' tip and it was really nice.

3wt Trout Spey Head (pretty much a scandi body) and 7' versileaders work excellent with the 3wt Hydrogen. 4wt should be just as good.
