Rexfly system

I think we can cast longer and fish longer time without unnecessary weight. IMO adding heavy reel to balance rod for "swing" or nymphing is not clever but building a longer handle is.

Accuracy leader question

I hope Fluorocarbon mono is forbidden? Is there difference between federations? Fluorocarbon density is almost double of Nylon which would have an advantage!

Ratio

It seems like I did not understand that. I have thought the spring constant should determine how much energy is "devided" between PE and KE?

I use Allbright knot because it can be tied to fly line loop and it doesn't cut coating.

Line for switch rod

I have four OutBounds and two Max heads and they are not like the profile picture. About five feet front and rear tapers and level in between. But floating and Intermediate AFS has about 2/3 of head weight in rear half. Sinking AFS have less weight difference between front and rear half.

casting dumbell eye bunny leeches

Hardy Zenith?

You cannot easily find XP-like action among current high performance rods because higher modulus carbon makes them lighter and stiffer. TCR weight is close to XP weight but it is much stiffer. Perhaps Nano-resin rods are closer because they are not light but generally they too are also stiffer than ...
