Re: Rear taper on shooting head

John i think in this is the beauty after all... Even more generally it is the beauty of fishing. There are dogmas that are not so rigid, there are technical considerations that seem obvious and that are disproved soon after. All this happens when there is the human component in the middle.

Re: Rear taper on shooting head

No problem James. I can't say how long the level line will last because I adopted this "trick" only yesterday.
