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...

.. and in both casts, one of the heads is reversed and the other is the right way around?

Two Gaelforce Extreme Distance 55g heads.
Unmodified out of the box, with no leader or fly.
The original files are in my Dropbox

Re: Two heads cast at the same time

Hi Paul
I will repeat the exercise (twice) and post the videos, however next time it will be with two heads from a different company.

I have two heads which I think sit in between the Scandi and Long Head Spey with regards to weight distribution.

Cheers

Re: Two heads cast at the same time

Both heads were cut to exactly 60ft (18.2m) mainly by losing some of the original front taper (as it’s very difficult to cast when reversed). Both heads have the complete back taper plus 1ft of level running line. The leader was also 6ft giving a total length (including 1ft of shooting line overhang...

Re: Two heads cast at the same time

Will the position of the tapers in each line interact and affect the tension in the other line, given that they were both connected to the same shooting line?

Re: Two heads cast at the same time

Hi Gordy

I took extreme care to ensure that both heads, leaders, fly size and the running line overhang at the start of the cast was exactly the same length...to within millimetres at least.

Cheers
