Re: Overpowered Curve

Looking forward to the video, quite sure you and Al are talking about the same, remember its written before high speed cameras was in everyones pocket, back then 60 fps was huge and in crap resolution πŸ˜‰ And you might find out it is what you're discussing, and if not I'll learn something new and that...

Re: Overpowered Curve

I like to keep the red herring abay and think of it as a faster way of rotating the rod, giving higher line velocity, since the tip moves faster.... πŸ˜‰

Al wrote the book in 2006, say hi from me please 😊

Re: Barbes vs barbless

A barbless hook penetrates easier all the way to the bend, when its deep, and one keeps tension on the line, it is practucally impossible for the hook to fall out.

So nada to loosing more fish πŸ˜‰

Re: Overpowered Curve

No, but he was emphatic. I'm asking because that was the old test, the new one (2017) asks for a curved line layout, and pull back is allowed. Still horisontal and vertical, left and right. And it stays in the new revision for 2020, expectations and worsing have just been clarified. Cheers Lasse

Re: Overpowered Curve

Did the examiner say why pull back isn't allowed?

Re: Snowbee prestige XS line (treatment)

Accounting for inflation, it adds up with mid 80`s πŸ˜‰

I find it quite true what Torsten posted when you know that two very similar lines, made at the same factory, by two different brands ends up in more than double in price, you do get a nice cardborad box with one though πŸ˜‰
