Re: Flexi-Stripper

I used mine in the surf Lasse, in a heavy shore break. There were problems at times but I learned to strip to suit the unit and the conditions. Double handed strip - left hand stripping down to the left side and right hand stripping down to the right side of the unit.

Re: Flexi-Stripper

Lars Thanks for the tip on getting the "spikes" straight again, mine have certainly collapsed. As they are Scandinavian originally I figured someone here would know the history of them.

Re: Flexi-Stripper

Thanks for that Mark, I have one of the originals, which I had rarely used and recently discovered what a super piece of kit it is. I didn't know Ahrex now had them. Got to use it in the surf recently and provided you strip properly, to suit the unit, its very good. Certainly not a conventional stri...

Flexi-Stripper

Any of the esteemed members of this board know who manufactures the Flexi-stripper line management unit? Good bits of kit.

Re: Statements that make you go Hmmm? #1

Bernd, (or anyone else - asking for a friend........) How would I explain to a student the difference between a "rapid deceleration" and a "stop"? And what happens at the end point of a "rapid deceleration" before the cast begins to move in the other direction?

Re: Leader designs

No John, Its about leaders that are not constructed primarily for turn over, they are constructed primarily and principally to withstand the abrasion/teeth of the head/mouth parts of the fish while including a class tippet section. The distal end is going to be anything from maybe 40lb single strand...

Re: Leader designs

Of course all of this goes completely out the window when you need to design a leader for billfish, tarpon, wahoo or barramundi. At that point practicality overtakes all other considerations.

Re: What is the definition of a 'water haul'?

Sorry about the thread hijack....... I'm finding there's a lot of stuff that translates back to single handers Paul - the lift I think has been the big one and of course its so critical in this Spey stuff. So easy to shift mistakes from one move to the next with a 2 hander, and of course they are ma...

Re: What is the definition of a 'water haul'?

All OK here thanks Paul, just trying to keep tabs on when I might next go fishing and its looking a bit grim - still its nice to spend some time at home. I had mostly signed off on any long distance travel this year anyway, the state of the world at the end of last year got to me a bit, I was in the...
