Well, IMO that talks very clearly about the actual quality of instructor's certification.

It also has the thinnest runni...

Hi James

Thanks, very good distances, if you look at the top level in T120 they seem to be a bit further though.

Rear Tapers

When casting with a shooting head it is easy to check that the longer the overhang the bigger the distance we get. That isn’t just due to an increase in line carry but to the dynamics of the loop: a longer overhang results in a longer time of loop turnover which results in more distance shot. Hi Ai...

Hi Bernd

I've only tried the prototype Paul had in Serbia last spring. So I'd rather not make any judgement on it :D

But to be honest, I would be very surpriced if I could put 2 meters on top of what I can get from the MED, the RIO doesn't even get me that in good conditions :)

Cheers

Wind outdoors vs indoor flycasting

and the right conditions, well into the 40's Hi Lasse, this leads a bit into the question, what would have to be changed, to increase the results that much? Seems to me like 120 feet indoors is a huge cast with the 5wt. MED. Greets Bernd Hi Bernd 7 years ago you didn't think anybody could throw 120...

Wind outdoors vs indoor flycasting

Hi Sasse It depends in the indoor venue :) Big enough, and the right conditions, well into the 40's Cheers Lasse Do you really think it effects the casting? I have only cast 3 competitions indoor and i have performed almost the same at al different times. I have hard to see that the air humidity an...
