Ah but you also get a stiffening of the rod with snakes compared to recoils!
It's an exploration; bring a flyrod.

The only way I can see doing it is to build the same blank twice and measure it each time. I think we will have to draw straws for that one :D

You already promised to make the measurement with a rod which was supposed to have its guides changed.

Shit! We’ve just changed a set of guides from RECs to Snakes for shooting heads. Sorry I’ll remember to do this next time 😡

Thanks!

Thank you all, you have given me food for thought! I'll probably just end up buying a factory model :sorcerer:

All the best
