Hi Darek

Don't know either the fenwick or the flextec, so sorry can't help there :) Headlength and profile is really personal option, they all work. I know a bunch uses a triangle taper style shootinghead, Zpey the norwegin brand used to have a comp head for this event with that kind of profile (two actually, the first was orange the second was tan...) Barrio makes one which is actually two different lengths in one, should be ok, but haven't cast it. I used to use DT's cut to weight, at present use a compound taper longbelly WF 8 cut to weight...

Regarding the flatbeam 50 lbs is great for fishing, 20 lbs (25lbs?) is too thin to be legal, 35 lbs is legal, but do a measurement check before using it!

Cheers
Lasse

Or you can do what I do and just borrow someone's gear on the day and try to work out how it works in 3 minutes. I personally would prefer that everyone used the same line, but maybe that's because I'm lazy :p

Thx,
secret plan :enjoy party,forget training -borrow equipment...

Flat Beam 25lbs too thin...
next Varivas Airs 24lbs 0,4mm should be ok?!Does someone use Amnesia?
Fenwick#8 works nice, 9'9" also not bad,but can not compare to anything...should have gone last week Germany,
but it was MayFly once a year...

Hi dabo!
The Varivas will be ok, but you have to put some holding line between head and running line, some mono 0.45 - 0.55 mm.
Amnesia is also ok. Actually any soft mono 0.35 mm will work fine.

Tracy upped her pb to 142ft today :yeahhh: . Given the right day she should increase her BFCC record by quite a way.

I don't have the patience for that and find practicing it pretty boring.
It takes special discipline to train your Zen mind for this game. I like it but I find my hand cramps if I practise for too long.

I'm going to buy a micrometer tomorrow. Any recommendations?

Cheers, Paul
