Re: First measured cast with my new HT Comp 5 (v2)

Hi Paul, Thank you! Carry is still in the same place as before, but it feels easier. My leader was actually 8' 6" and not the maximum 11' 10" (BFCC), so i'm sure with the right leader length (and tons of practice with this new rod) i'll hopefully be hitting 120' in still conditions more often than n...

Hi Stefano,

It's a nice line, it's bang on a #5 with a 58' head :cool: Yes, it's on the website :)

First measured cast with my new HT Comp 5 (v2)

Hi all, I took the HT out for a quick cast today, with the Ballistic Pro Performance #5. The conditions were pretty still (and cold!). I still need a lot of practice to really dial in and fine tune the rod, but it was very enjoyable to cast. Tight chisel shaped loops with a noticeable increase in li...

Re: Recent FP from Paul

Were you using the frequency trout, Lasse? :)

This is very interesting and i'll have to try it. Do you slip line at loop straight position on the back cast, Paul? Do you find the heavier lines tuck more so you are thinking of slowing down a bit to compensate? :)

All the best

Re: Overhead Casting Issues

Hi Bendix, Sorry! :cool: Drift is repositioning the rod between casting strokes :D . Have you found Pauls Masterclass on here? I think it would help tremendously, it's single handed, but the same principals apply to any bendy stick. The feel is quite subtle. When you 'stop' on the back cast, imagine...

Re: Overhead Casting Issues

Hi Bendix, Welcome to the board! :cool: Sinking lines are a funny one, take out all the force (power) and drift drift drift drift drift (thanks Lasse). I always used to cast sinkers with a belgian cast, but i cast them straight and drift a lot now. There are a few reasons to drift, but in this case ...

Re: MED for HT6?

Hi Tom,

I use Pauls Thunderbolt 6 for fishing (and grass casting). It's an amazing line! :cool: It performs overhead, Speys/rolls and presentation casts/mends exceptionally well. :yeahhh:

All the best!

Re: SA intermediate sink lines?

Hi Nick, since I add Shoot to all my floating lines (and even the HiDs and shooting line) they all seem to shoot well. The tropical MED is just a bit stiffer and has a slightly textured coating. They were from a batch of lines that Josh had made for himself (apparently it gets hot in Michigan!) and...
