Maybe Ashly could randomly select the lines and string up the rod? :whistle:

Better yet, maybe Ashly should do the casting and you could do the timing? :p

Hi Walter, so long as all of them are the same for you then it won’t affect your results. No shooting or slipping line. Just PUALD 10 times and score the total time for each rod. In other words pick up from a hoop and back on a hoop/ mark/ whatever.

Regards rods I imagine mine are all ERN+1 but I have no idea. Rods of increasing stiffness. I’m sure you’ll find significant stiffness variation between a rod marked 4 and one that’s marked 12.

Cheers, Paul

Depends who marked them :D

For the "stiffer rods throw much further " tests I did, I used three rod that said 5 one that said 10 and one that said 12. In CCS it was 5,5 7;4 9,0 11,0 and 13 something as far as I remember. Still those numbers doesn't mean much without additional info, all rods had AA between 69 and 75.

Oh and the stiffest didn't win that time either, why should it win now?

Why does everyone keep changing the goalposts? :D

And I know you found that which is interesting because four guys in Scotland all found different. Lee, James, Ben and I all three progressively further with stiffer rods in a measured competition.

Not changing any goalposts, just trying to make sure they are standing where they should be...

And yeah, I keep hearing that, but haven't seen any data so far, only talk...
As I am only a mediocre caster, I'm happy to believe it's my skills which are crap, but I really need evidence to sway me, and I haven't gotten any solid so far...

One shouldn’t ask questions. It will change the goal posts.
