Odd number torpedos...

#1

Of late (like today) I’m seeing numbers like Ht 3wt in 7’6 and possibly 5wt???
Yes, yes, yes.... odd numbers make so much more sense visually!!! You hold 4 X HT’s up and then hold up 5 or even 7! Which looks better 5 and 7 obviously👍. Now I only own 1 HT(3+1)wt, but pretty eager to get hold of a 3 and 5 😮. 👍👍
Is there truth in this Paul? The world needs a mega distance casting 3wt even if just for my Popping Shrimp flies 🥰. Graeme’s review was not really for 4wt so he needs a 3wt also 👍👍👍

Easy - just buy the HT8 and put a 3wt line on it. :D (See my message for more information ... )

Nup, I don't need a 3wt. ;)

:D

I’ve been working on a 5WT on and off since the start! Still don’t have what I want. I think I’m pretty close on a 9’ 7WT instructor. The 7’6 3/4 is finalised and I’ve placed the first blanks order. This will be ready in about a month. I realise everyone has their favourite line weight and length :cool:

Cheers, Paul
