Stiffness and Tip speed

Hi Daniel Although my Meridian weights some 109 grams, I consider an "effective" mass of the model 908 rod by skipping the last 20 cm from the bottom (top of grip location approximately). Same for the reel. I did some test with those parts but that brings more complexity than significant results. Th...

Cheap DT fly line

Mine does but I'm aware of the odd hiccup. They are a good bunch of guys, if you ask them they will check yours before they send it.

Thanks Daniel, I need to ponder the graphic for a while because I am travelling to France for the week and haven't got time to study it just now. I realise that MoI is important but I don't have swingweight data. Nevertheless, I do know that the mass of 7ft #4 rod that I built last year with thin wi...

Sorry Daniel I have a secondary question as well, having been out casting a #6 and #10 outfit today. What rod mass do you use for calculation?

Don’t worry about it Daniel, it’s easy to get lost in the complexity. I’m still confused by your answer though, what is your reference axis?
