Dynamic Response

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...

line carry vs. rod stiffnes

The best thing is to meassure every blank. But nobody does that.I guess that 2 grams heavier is mainly in the bottom section? If not,I would not bet for similarities. Tom. I don't know where that 2 gram is, but can you tell me where 16 gram difference can come from? I have here maybe 10 PROs they a...

line carry vs. rod stiffnes

Hi Akos I'm talking about the actual blank, if a tip weighs 2,6 grams and the guy sanding it shaves of another 0,1 gram, the action will change alot! This is before the blank is actually painted and epoxied... You should really try it :) Sanding your own rod and see if you can measure a difference. ...

line carry vs. rod stiffnes

Hi Mike

Yup :) There is so many places in rod manufacturing that has a impact on how the finished rod is, and it is still a manual job so they differ.
With the TCR 5 I've even found a correlation between serial number and stiffness :glare:

Guess yours is a AA :sorcerer:

Cheers

line carry vs. rod stiffnes

The HT has the same stiffness as my TCR5 ?? Hi Lasse, that is wierd about the TCR. In my exercise with the line carry I carried 0.8m more with HT, and it felt deffenetly stiffer. p.s thanks for the loop morph explanation, I got it now cheers mike Hi MIke I wrote that MY TCR has the same stiffness a...

line carry vs. rod stiffnes

The HT has the same stiffness as my TCR5 ?? Hi Lasse, The 6wt TCR bends deeper than the HT and is less crisp. As I think about it there could be similarities with the NRX 8wt, that is true. I am not familiar with the 5wt TCR. Cheers, Ákos Hi Akos My TCR 5 has ERN 7,4 and AA 73, the 6 I had, measure...

line carry vs. rod stiffnes

When we discussed the stiffnes of the rod in the relation to distance casts, his answer was simple. In the conditions we had in Norway, he would choose a stiffer rod like the HT, to get an extra punch in to the back cast with the tail wind. In calm contitions he would choose a softer rod like a TCR...

Release

I mostly agree with that, not really sure it needs to ascend, but that's for further study :) If you maintain or decrease the radius of the curve that follows the rod tip never will see a transverse traveling wave, you need to increase that radius, and that can be translated in the colloquial langu...

What Rod for Single Handed Spey

Hi Vince

Good reply from Bernd there, I'm the type that likes a stiffer rod for my wide arcs and softer stops :p

If you want something the responds different than your XP, then don't you just have to decide wether it should be softer or stiffer than that one?

Cheers

line carry vs. rod stiffnes

Hi Svend

If you're going in cirlces, all you have is flyleg :) And I would say you have alot of tip speed, but linespeed varies ;)

Really tight loops are rarely stable and you have to cast pretty straight to make them :)

Lasse
