The question is, is it a heavier line for distance or a lighter one? 😂
You doing a Lefty here? Lighter line for casting into the wind and shit?

Mass is King.

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. Cheers, Paul So you're tenkara fishing, that's ok 🙂 I catch most where I need bin...

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

Rods get stiffer.... Really? A minute few does, the majority, not so much, persieved stiffness might have gone slightly up, but not so much that it really accomodate going up 2 line sizes.. What's happened is the old go up 2 line sizes with a 30 foot shootinghead, and everyone is making wannabee sho...

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

Me too, and all from the same manufacturer...

Could it have something to do with, more mass equals better results on average, so it's better to target higher than lower, for less complaints?

Re: Lars FP about the bullhsitting line manufacturers

Another good example is the Barrio 125. That’s also somewhere in the middle weights. So on the HT6 I’d fish or cast the 125 5WT. That rod was essentially designed around an XXD 6. Cheers, Paul GT125 WF5F fly line - target weight at 30 feet - 140 grains / 9.1 grams. - standard is 140 GT125 WF6F fly ...

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. Cheers, Paul The rod works as a big spring, the quicker you can load it, the better you can cast.... 🤣 Physics, nobod...

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...
