Shooting heads

I think we would see some using the 15, it's not really the bend that would make the high mark... You've seen the clip of the 13 weight on a rod that says 3... Hi Lasse, if throwing a 13 wt. fly line does not be much of a problem in controlling rod bend to shape the loops and achieving the desired ...

Shooting heads

Actually it's a nice 5 but a bit on the heavy side: Hi Lasse, you better watch your strike indicator if you don't want a fish flying at the end of your line using that rod to fish the 5wt. line :p Nice videos. How would you describe the feeling to cast both rods over a longer period in the average ...

Shooting heads

If we all had to throw the same rod for ultimate distance, the line choice of MED would be very easy, all would choose the MED 8 or 9 :D Heavier goes further :pirate: Let's imagine MED would be available upto AFFTA 15. Still the heaviest one? I think we would end up around 7 to 8 mainly. Would have...

Shooting heads

I just went through a CCS database, lowest 5 : ERN 4,9 and highest 5: ERN 9,0 avg of 30 labelled 5 rods in that database i ERN 6,4 :) I guess it depends on which database you go through. Did you use superbob's or SL? Incidently, when shootingheads for a TCX 690 or similar comes up on Danish forums,...

Shooting heads

Now let's imagine we all would have to take the same rod but have free choice in line weight. Let's take Lasse's TCX 690. How many different line weights would we have seen when talking about the MED? I don't think we would have seen too much of a range in line weight. But I might be wrong? :) We a...

Shooting heads

Hi Lasse, a while ago I looked up CCS datas (CCS website) for all 5wt. labeled rods: ERN 2,7 minimum (Fenwick) ERN 7,7 max (Dan Craft) ERN 5,4 avg. HT (7,2-7,5) seems to be a pretty stiff 5wt. labeled rod when talking about the whole stiffness range for these category of fly rods (according to the ...

Spanish experiment

Hi James That makes good sense, don't trust your speedometer ;) It still means that for a period of time you where travelling faster than the police car. Same as with the bricks, without the spring, it's your heavy foot, and it goes of faster in the beginning, the spring attached brick then has to s...

Spanish experiment

Hi James Ok, can you explain it to me? I'm the last guy to be posting physics stuff anyway, so I can't really get my head around this: Two bricks side by side on a table. The get accelerated for 56 cm's, and one of them get's ahead. But the one that is ahead, isn't travelling the fastest/has the hig...

Shooting heads

Hi Bernd Yup, Tellis's lines are supposed to be on the high mark for what is allowed, and then beef up like the old Pounch from Guideline. I'm looking forward to trying them out anyhow. Tellis Btw. had a very cool idea for labeling his rods, something aboiut what kind of bend you prefered and then a...

Spanish experiment

Hi James

It was the brick on the table that had the lead, didn't look at the falling weights, those wheren't the interesting part ;)

Cheers
