Stiffness and Tip speed

Here is the same illustration when using the tip speed at the time when the vertical tip speed peaks. That should correspond to your question I think: Hi Daniel Thank you but I was looking at where the tip deviates from the SLP, so I guess it would be where the vertical speed changes from zero.

I’ve used 5’ glass to 8’ carbon Matt but 7’ is probably the most utility. It’s best early season but I fish in the tunnels when everyone is having bbq in their gardens. You are more than welcome to come up for a paddle any time.

Stiffness and Tip speed

Hi Daniel

Ulrik discusses line and tip measurements as a later development, so it appears that he doesn’t have any data. Has the rod tip come off the SLP at 25-40 mS before RSP?

Hi Daniel

Are the tip speeds you are quoting the loaded or unloaded speed?

Yep, same stuff Matt, knife fight ina phone box :D I was even laying on my back with legs in the stream, casting a mayfly to a rising fish last season. I’m not sure how that stance is classified :D

Paul If you don’t watch your back cast on small overgrown streams, you are going to spend an awful lot of your time picking your fly out of trees, there’s few places for a conventional overhead cast. I also now use an open stance for distance, saltwater and pike fishing. Before this year, I generall...

I used to fish very closed, the switch to open is very recent. I think there’s pro’s and cons but now wish I’d learnt open first as the transition would have been easier between styles.
