Re: Rod reviews

I really must redo Lasse’s video because I think it’s misleading! (Or I’m mistaken of course and all rods are the same!) Cheers, Paul :wanker: :wanker: Its actually funny, so far I have been accused of being able to manipulate one rod over the other, having photoshopped the clips, that the stiff ro...

Paul will probably claim the problem to be the brick on a string line 😉

Re: Stroke length in relation to style

Slightly different ways of achieving almost the same outcome:



Nice pulling technique there Nick 🙂

Do you guys ever fish a team of three flies on a shooting head?

Cheers, Paul
Nope, sometimes two flies on the leader, but never on the head 😉
And having had two fish on at the same time doesn't make me want to try three 😂

Re: Too wide a casting arc...

Bollocks, just because you can't doesn't mean everyone suffers.... Fun facts, barrio slx is one weight over, Rio singlehand spey is two weights over, 40+ dabbles in between 2 and 3 over... Old one was welded together (black spot) another brand had a similar line but in reverse colours made by barsto...

Re: Pull the line first.

Shooting heads I think are different but I’ve often heard casters talking about the loop looking like a number 7 and “floating out” giving their longest casts. Don’t get me wrong, I think line speed is important but it’s also quite possible that optimum speed is not simply maximum speed. Something ...

Re: Pull the line first.

I get the joke, but I was surprised to find that your peak haul speed on the forward cast was closer to MAV while Lasse's was closer to RSP1. Thus the timing of the peak of the haul speed (and/or peak acceleration) may be quite forgiving. Yes I was and still am surprised by this too Gordy. It’s int...

Re: Stroke length in relation to style

Phweew was slightly worried 😂 An advantage of increasing stroke length, less work for same outcome. Its easier to be precise even if tracking can be an issue, it's usually a bigger issue with the shorter stroke as it has to be faster. Now a really short line, it just feels a bit ridiculous, to move ...
