Re: Cleaning lines

I let them soak in clean soft water. Then wipe the dirt of with a soft cloth. Then apply dressing if nessecary.

I like Pauls approach, a bit like putting wax on a dirty car 😉

Re: Line Friction and Line Tension

Guides and blanks is a nice website to buy rod components from, but they only have a selection of whats out there, and no raised single legs, thankfully 🤣 Haven't found a good pic yet, but just imagine a normal single leg snake, then extend the wire from the eye to the foot by half a cm..... the nat...

Re: Line Friction and Line Tension

There's no groove in a lined ring, unless its very very worn or chipped.

It seems like the raised single legs have gone from production, good ridance 🤣

Re: Analysing loop propagation

Graeme, quite difficukt to determine anything from your blown up picture, but I think I know where you want to go with it. If a transverse wave displaces matter while it travels, but brings it back when it leaves, how can a loop be called a wave, when it moves matter from one point and leaves it at ...

Re: Line Friction and Line Tension

Re: Line Friction and Line Tension

Raised single leg rings where the worst, haul lock up on demand..... Luckily a fad that disappeared as fast as it came :-)

Sharkskin texture was supposed to give up to 7% longer casts.... That was quickly bunked. They do feel great lifting of water!

Re: Shooted cast

Very interesting. When we see the loop unroll on the 170 the loop point is close to the top. I had assumed that this was related to peak haul speed (there was a video of Lasse finishing his back haul around this point). However I can see now that it might be peak tip speed since that’s considerably...

Re: Shooted cast

So not what I think, but what actually happens We may be right and wrong at the same time Lasse. I checked the video with the light as the reference this time. In the first case the light is on just after RSP (10 to 15 ms maybe if I can rely on the time scale). In the second case it is just in time...
