Rio Scandi short

I am in the process of building an ARE IM6 3/4 11ft switch. I am now considering the purchase of a Rio Scandi Versitip Short head set. Since the rod is rated a 3/4 any suggestions as to whether the 3 or 4 wt set would be best? According to Rio, the 3 weighs 240 and the 4 weighs 275. Thanks for any info. Roy

I would go with the 4wt line.

Depending on your casting style? Are you a tippy caster or like the feel a bit deeper . I would say go 240, but better yet call Steve Godshall he knows that blank

I called Steve yesterday and had a good conversation with him. He is making a line for me based on our discussion. Good price too!

Right on! Did he give you any grain ideas? I really love his Skandit lines, very universal line!
