On sartorial matters. I predict a comet to wipe out all baseball hats. Soon. Be ready.
On pipe cleaners – 😅

You do seem more elegant in your cargo shorts with the pipe cleaners sticking out the bottom than the mustard trousers. Corduroy is about as useful for sartorial matters as it is for building fly rods :D
Do my legs look that fluffy? Good thing my yellow pants are long then :blush:



Contemplating getting a pair of corduroy shorts now :yeahhh:

If you really believe it will make a difference, it just might ;)
Genius! Bold thing casting two rods –not just superimposing footage. The result is impressive. I expected the broomstick to produce a more different result than the "noodle". Maybe I'm disappointing you now? I hope not.


Alot of people think there will be a big difference, its often said, and if its often said, it must be true... but we've known for sure for more than a decade that its not.
Though I have been accused of making those clips in photoshop, that the stiffer rod is just on for the ride, or the soft one is just on for the ride, depending on peoples preference. That I have magic hands, and can dampen one of two rods in my hand more than the other, and other funny claims :D
Tackle matters most if you're trying to sell it ;)
Question:
Would casting my DT3 on my Loop #7 be like a simulation of a MED5/#10 setup? What do you think?
(As I wait for that 10–broomstick to materialise).
DT3 is so light that that matters more in casting that the difference in stiffness between a "7" weight and a "10" weight rod :)
But I would recommend that you cast it any day of the week, if for nothing else, for the experience.

Don’t give Lasse a wide brim hat, he’ll look like a nail

And those look dapper! Do they come in cargo?

Suspecting you have trouser envy....

So true. And we listen.

The experience was very different from expectation. Because this DT3 and the MED5 was almost identical to cast.

It turned out that this Vision Attack DT3 weigh 8,4 grams! 9,15 meters.
This is not near any AFTM class.
Little wonder I put this line back in its box and tried to forget about it.


AFTM 3 = 6,5 gram
AFTM 4 = 7,7 gram
Vision DT3 = 8,4 gram
AFTM 5 = 9,1 gram

This was a very convincing video. Hilarious. From now I will go all in for corduroy, and any European headwear.

Looks like we are playing trouser trumps and I don't mean a farting competition: :D
