Shooting Head Definition

So a DT with loops at both ends is really just a long shootinghead named wrongly :yeahhh: Hi Lasse, I like your fine (and short) lego definition :). Since you seem to like extreme examples :cool: If you take an 18 feet DH rod and aerilize the full length of DT while having flat beam (connected by l...

Haul adjustment, when to stop rod & line hand

Shooting heads

Maybe it is Lasse, but in general (because we seem to be thinking that way in this thread) would you agree that rods have got stiffer over what they once were? Cheers Ben Hi Ben Actually not, I know there's a piece somewhere on the net with a bunch of the rod designers and they say the rods have go...

Shooting Head Definition

hey Mike ! it's the loop connection between the head and shooting line that defines it for me. (as explained by Bernd during a shooting head course in Spain a few years back :cool: ) otherwise, (with a spliced or whatever permanent connection) it's a WF whose running/shooting line may vary in choic...

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 ...
