Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

The question is, is it a heavier line for distance or a lighter one? 😂

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

The average application being as far as you can throw :D I catch most of my fish where I can see how they eat the fly. Soon it will be like golf and we will need a different line for every 10ft extra cast!

Back to KL.

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

I’m sure. It’s absolutely market driven. Rods get stiffer, lines get heavier. It’s only a problem when you need to fish small and fine. As one of the Ardleigh regulars used to say “there are anglers and there are danglers”. I’m still not sure which category he put me in :D

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

It’s a funny thing but I’ve had very few lines that are underweight :)

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

what about the lines your were supposed to send a year ago?
Haven’t made them yet. Plan to with next batch! It’s always more challenging when I get asked for something I don’t have :D

Do you have a measuring balance?

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

I realise that paying for lines makes a big difference. And there is a huge difference between paying 5USD and 100USD, for something that is very similar. I’ve been given lines from SA, RIO, Cortland, Barrio and one Chinese company. Hundreds and hundreds of them over the years. And other companies t...

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

Quicker loading surely would be for faster shots? What it really is is deeper loading for slower shots, Graeme. Are those measured weights TZ or pulled off the site? When I mentioned it to Mike he good me they target the upper end of the scale not the centre. This is why we need to weigh all this st...

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

It is very interesting because it’s the complete opposite of marketing blurb and what many people believe ie heavier line for quicker loading. I think that’s theory before practise.

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

Yes I did. I found it too stiff with a 5 line for short fishing casts. Mind you I didn’t acquire the rod for fishing but instead distance casting. Not all rods are best underlined 😂 And fantastic - I know. Can’t wait to show you this crazy fishing! Il be in Europe for two months next year, so don’t ...
