Celt,
There are a lot of us on line for the F/I.
I had to go to the Snowbee Short-Spey (SS).
It has a 44" head that I cut back about 6-7' to approximate the RIO taper. It comes in 40, 44 and 48 grams.
Don't much care for the very thin running line for OH casting. But it is Dacron braid so you can do a chain link loop-to-loop weld to install a different running line on it.
Not much else out there in a heady integrated intermediate line.
Regards,
Herb

Thanks, Herb...good to learn of an OB alternative. Is the Snowbee Scandi-Spey head totally intermediate or floating with an intermediate tip at the front? Also, how do you construct a chain link loop-to-loop weld?....I'm not familiar with that type of weld, at least by that description.
Regards,
Jerry

Celt,
Line is totally intermediate.
"Chain-link" attachment. Just link your two index fingers together and that is a chain-link attachment. Cannot be undone w/o destroying it.
The opposite of a "hand-shake" loop-to-loop attachment that can be taken apart.
