Re: Large SH rod videos?

Well that’s Hooke’s Law so it’s a difficult position to argue against. “Slowing it down” is not really accurate. Bending it more which in turn results in a slower stroke is probably more accurate. Put a 4 line on the 8 and compare that to a 12 on the 8 and there are some pretty big stroke adjustmen...

Re: What do you think?

One could argue that there happens a bit more at an ironman compared to a casting competition with mostly introverts and 0 spectators... :-D
I'm all for it though!

Re: Large SH rod videos?

You haven't tried some of the recent broomstick winstons I can tell then :whistle: And no, definetly not a winston man :D I think your HT 8 is the best rod out there that says 8 above the handle. The whole what action you want and heavier line slows down the action myth is something I do not buy int...

Re: What do you think?

Luck plays a big part, but looking at the finalists over the last 10 years, several names go again in the top 10, and even in the finals, so all out of wack they havent been, some of us have just drawn the bad luck more than once... and yeah I would love to travel to Estonia and compete indoors, or ...

Re: What do you think?

It's 4 minutes 😉 5 in slamon, 6 in spey....

And fwiw I have been a strong proponent for putting us all in water and measuring over land, 1/2 meter doesnt cut it at all....

Biggest problem is getting helpers/judges.. a format that doesn't require more would be preferable, wouldn’t it?

The flies i use on the rod Paul would write 8 on, that I use a bit of 11 weight line to throw easier, are all quite big, I'll post a pic in a sec.

They are possible to throw on even a 5 weight, but so much easier on a heavier line :blush:

Re: What do you think?

If I want a long cast I'll stand on a cliff with the wind behind me at an altitude of over 2000 metres. I'm not a hero :D Cheers, Paul You would only get a long cast if we measure vertically..... and you slipped line :D While I agree, that we should all be casting indoors to have as fair as possibl...

It wouldn't be safe for Lasse to cast the 12WT without first tying his feet to the ground.
I've gotten fat since we last met dude ;)

Re: Large SH rod videos?

Ok, on a bit more serious note.... My 12 weights don't see much fishing from my hands, all fish caught on them have been by friends who has borrowed them for trips :D So I can't tell you what line weight I would put on them, but the times I have practiced with them it's been lines in the 12-13 weigh...
