Shooting Head Definition

from Lasse So a DT with loops at both ends is really just a long shootinghead named wrongly :yeahhh: if the intention is to aerialize the DT as a shooting head and shoot from there, sure it's a shooting head. what ? are we going to define a SH by it's length ? :whistle: (you did bring up head to sh...

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

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...
