Thank's for your thoughts btw, maybe the answer is to not use shooting heads :laugh: :laugh:

All the best

Yeah, shooting heads suck for distance 😉

I think i might fish with a '#7' outfit when i next go fishing and bang a #5 barrio line on it. The look on someones face when they ask to have a go will be priceless :sorcerer:
Barrio Slx?

Re: Too wide a casting arc...

I have a few sinking lines - Leviathan - that as far as I can work out can only be thrown about 90 feet, neither shorter nor longer, and always collapse on roll out. The only way I can get turnover is to stand on the bloody line! (and then they tuck!) Cheers, Paul I know a good instructor that can ...

Re: Too wide a casting arc...

Damn forgot the filter was of 🤣🤣🤣 PU isn't necessarily thicker than PVC... 😉 But an overweight line does go further for most... And since everyone buys the rod before trying, or trives with an overweight line anyway, thats what people ask for 🙈 Just read someone giving advice, and suggested the old ...

Re: Too wide a casting arc...

I think it is both much simpler and more complex than what you outline here mate :upside: One line weight being the difference between good loops and nonloops? Should I post that damn video again, it's basically several lineweights difference between the two rods, and no where do the nonloops happen...

Re: Too wide a casting arc...

The one line up has been a stable as long back as I can remember, particularly for beginners as rods are too stiff now a days.... I started with a fibreglass too, the one in the video you're afraid to do yourself 😉 and I know that B&W, had a 10 foot 4/6 weight in the non sanded, and a friend fished ...

Re: Too wide a casting arc...

Have a look at all the guru's, selfproclaimed world champions and what not, that very seriously proclaims that the AFFTA line standard is dead, obsolete and non functioning... That you need to engage the butt section of the rod (they sell) because thats where the power is, and you must let the rod d...

Re: Too wide a casting arc...

Only with short lines, stick 50 feet outside and its a different story, until they do the most manly thing and flex the upper arm more and more 🤣

Re: Too wide a casting arc...

Not as far as I can remember 🙂 I've had plenty throw massive tails when handed a softer rod, and when handed a comp outfit with a light line and a stiff rod, not get the line moving much and just add slack with each stroke.. Men are funny like that, when they shouldn't listen to their brain they do,...
