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 ;)

Spanish experiment

Hi Godon

Seperate weights and seperate bricks. Getting the weights to drop at the same time is difficult, that's why I used a book to suspend the weights until dropping them.

Shooting heads

Hi Lasse, I didn't (mean to) say there is a definit fit for each rod in general. My experience is, that all fly fishermen in my lessons ended up choosing the same head weight on a specific rod in a specific situation using a specific fly to be cast. And that leads me to believe there is an avergae ...

Shooting heads

Let's take an example: A student will ask me which Barrio SLX fly line to use on the HT fly rod. On the Barrio website I find: head length: 10m WF4F-10 grams, WF5F-12 grams, WF6F-13.6 grams, WF7F-15.2 grams, WF8F-17.5 grams The HT is quite stiff for a 6wt. rod in my book. ERN is 7,2 and AA 70. The ...
