Drop them a line Graeme, I’m sure it will get sorted.

Have you measured the taper? If they’ve sent the right line, then the tip is too long.

Only by feel. It's about 6' long. You're right though: I should do it properly.

You're right too Andrew. :D

A shootinghead against a full line, yeah cheating always helps with low self esteem :D




Yeah I'm not very confident, but standing on a lawn, throw that line around makes me feel better about myself... I mean it's basically on par with freeclimbing, apnea diving or mastering quantum physics. And one day I'll show them all, become a throw-a-line-around examiner and weigh the lines of candidats to make sure they use proper 7wts! :D
