Release

Hi Marc

And you can get a tail in the leader without the tip going booing??

Cheers
Lasse

Ps. All my practice and competition leaders are made out of red amnesia for the butt, pink flat shootingline for the taper and fluo green berkley XT solar for the tippet ;)

- there has been discussion in the past on SL that the 170 cast can't (or shouldn't) be used for heavier weight rods (8 and above?) because it is too hard on the muscles and joints. I would love for someone knowledgable to confirm that. A more contrieved cast makes my joints go bump, actually my on...

line carry vs. rod stiffnes

Hi Paul

Yup, that's how I usually do it, make three at least measurements to check I get the same result all three times. If not, I fault check and remeasure until I get the same results everytime.

Hi Bernd My max carry decreases with the wind and the way I cast, but I'm not looking for max carry to get my longest casts, I'm looking for the right carry and that is shorter than my max :) I'm not hitting 140 in windless, just look at what I threw in Norway with no wind :D But if we are comparing...

line carry vs. rod stiffnes

Hi Lasse, so you found +/- 0,5 ERN for just a few TCR 5wt. rods. Interesting. Since you just measured a few rods the full deviation (for thousands of rods) probably will be even higher. I didn't think it would vary that much. Well I have found a connection between serial numbers and stiffness. Of c...

line carry vs. rod stiffnes

Guess yours is a AA :sorcerer: Cheers Lasse Hi Lasse I actually bought the TCR qith DEMO writen on the blank. Ive been told that yhis is the same rod(performance wise), as the one they sell in series. Demo was on the shop equipment for custumer to try. I got it for 100$- good deal. The marks on the...

line carry vs. rod stiffnes

p.s.: The range of ERN results we find for a single model of rod, is imo at least 50% based on the standard deviation for the measurement. I found results from 7,1 to 7,6 within a day of measuring the same HT again and again. And that was just me and my exact way to measure it. Hi Bernd Doesn't sou...

Hi Bernd

Not for me :)
I can get 90 feet in the air in several ways, but only 140 in front in one :)

I am not convinced that this is what Grunde meant by soft stop This is one area of confusion that exists with a lot of the tech analysis stuff. We have at least 2 distinct casting styles when it comes to distance casting (the 170 cast and the shorter arc cast). We also have different ideas of effic...
