Re: Lift force acting on a fly line

Have fun with the bead chain casting experiments Graham, it will be fine...
I once fished with it 😉

Magnus

Class results 👍🏻 Well done all especially the ladies!
Please correct me if I’m wrong, Tellis’s total is down as 113.5m yet is made up of a 57.5LH and a 56.5 RH (=114m)?

Cheers

Re: Two heads cast at the same time

Ah OK - that makes more sense! If you cast the reversed head on its own can you get it to fly better? With my two hybrid lines I had real problems with the front loaded tapers when casting slow. In particular I had the last section come through very low on the front weighted line. (Looks like the w...

Re: Two heads cast at the same time

Hi Lee What gaelforce lines are you using? I thought the two long ones where the long head spey from Rio? Cheers Lasse In the third video (yesterday on page 20) I am using the gaelforce equaliser 55g, in the second video it was the Rio Long Head Spey, in the first video it was Rio Scandi heads bein...

Yes mate, I said it a few posts back in reply to John, all the biggest distances in 55g casting here (70+m) have come from using reversed heads.

Re: Two heads cast at the same time

No Paul, the reversed head turned second in both examples with the Gaelforce lines 😉

Just look at the contrast between the two lines as they are getting launched, the near side line is thicker near the rod tip and it’s quite obvious thats the one which is the right way round.

Re: Two heads cast at the same time

Great again, thanks a lot Lee Clearly one is faster than the other, but which one? The normal way I guess. And in both cases. Now the problem is to know about the taper. Like Paul I cannot see any info on their site. Do we have to find a way to measure that taper? Merlin I could mic it every 1ft an...

Thanks Lee.

I'll take a wild guess and say the one with the dodgy loop is the reversed one in each case. I don't think any company would release a line that would cast like that! :)

Cheers,
Graeme
It’s fine on it’s own, even the wrong way round 🤓

Re: Two heads cast at the same time

Hi Lee, I can't seem to find any info on the taper online. Is there a diagram on the box? Cheers, Paul I knew “out of the box” would come back to bite me... :D :D The box was thrown away a long time ago I’m afraid. basically it’s triangle taper style with a level section of belly near the back. Che...
