ST27 - where to start?

:D Tell me again you PB :p The secret is the comfy chair ;)[/quote]

173' in practice, 162'5" against the tape in competition. I wish I could find a 9'6" rod I liked, 10' rods don't really work for me either. You coming to Spain Lasse? Be interesting to see what you make of my 27g rod.

Cheers

Ben

Hi Ben

Won't be coming to Spain, can't make it.. Hope you get to Norway (and I do too, still have to qualify...) I'd like to try it there :cool:

Oh and 198'5" in practice 173'6" in competition ;) It's the comfy chair I tell you, Paul's the one with the rose tinted glasses...

Cheers

Hi guys
Bloody hell,when I red your distances I went back to check if my head is 2,7g or 27g. :p
Tell me more about your results on a calm windless days.This is what I have now (Spring in Italy, no wind-bugger)

Hi Bart
I had same issue last year-which rod?
In Scotland I tried Ben's 9'#12, wasnt bad ,there was something missing for me. Then I tried 9'8"-to long.
Now Im with Echo3 9'6"#8 and I love it.
Cheers
Mike

Thanks Mike.
Those distances are indeed impressive. Although I don't have any idea what is far and what not with this kind of outfit.
Seems like there will be people in the 200 league any time soon. My god :sick:

Is Baltic flyfisher the supplier for the echo rods in all of Europe? (I am in the Netherlands)

Hi Bart

Yup, balticflyfisher is the supplier for most of Europe, including netherlands :)

Think it will still be a while before 200 is broken, but you never know :)

Flat calm anything over 130 feet is good, 140 super 150 exceptionel.

Good conditions 150 is good 160 great 170 super 180 exceptionel

Those figures might change, they are just ballpark :-)

Maybe I should compete in that. Let me think... No I wont
I don't have the patience for that and find practicing it pretty boring.
I've found all but dh spey events' training boring. So I haven't trained anything but the speys. In the first WC I competed in Trout Distance (5wt) too. In second WC I participated in all but Salmon Distance. In Nordic Champ I competed in all events (and I was also running from one place to another since I was one of the organizers).

I've now commited on training the single handed events too. But, I've been commited before and still skipped them. :-)
I'm here just for the chicks.

Thanks Lasse
Nicely put, its a good guideline for practice.
p.s

cheers
