SexyLoops Hot Torpedo - Instructor Rod

How does this affect the cast and the "feel" of the rod? Hi Vince, am not sure the rod has any feel. :p :cool: But to me adding more weight (while keeping the same (short) head length) results in too much rod bend. I will loose to much of proper tip path. This happens especially post RSP1. The cf w...

13 year old wiz kid

Hi Cast1
Get that boy catching his first fish. That's YOUR moment to share, too. :)

How about teaching him the double haul (using a short head might be a very good choice)?

SexyLoops Hot Torpedo - Instructor Rod

Hi Merlin The three upper rod sections stick together. The third section clamped on the table. 1,32m of "free overhang". 10,04 gramm hanging of the tip = 7,2 cm deflection (including 1,2 cm zero-weight-deflection). I would use a 15-16 gramm floating shooting head in length of 10-10,5m on that rod. A...

SexyLoops Hot Torpedo - Instructor Rod

Hi Merlin, the best weight for distance casting depends on the line (head) length I would be using. 18 gramm might match on 15m length while 16 gramm might match on 12m and 14 gramm might match on 9m It also would depend on the density of the line. Yes, I took 1/3 of the total length (275,5cm) as th...

Hi Gordy, if you check my last front page (pic of the day section), does that picture of the HT rod action help? http://www.sexyloops.com/picofday/bernd/bernd16.jpg If you need a 45° pic let me know... About Tim's very fine video: If "Rod power" is the "overall stiffness", well then why doesn't he c...

Real Name

I would leave it to anyone him/herself to use the real name or not. Personally I prefer real names. But I fully understand that not everyone wants it that way. Not unusual that (for example) employers check their (potential) staff via internet. I remember quite some people who did not want their rea...

Florida Keys

Thanks guys, so at least in BB there really seem to be some Bones left. When I was down the Keys last time it (for example) was possible to drive to Anne's beach in Islamorada and watch out for Bonefish the last 30 minutes of daylight just before sunset. That was when turists have all left the beach...

Changing student's style

I want people to learn all styles because they all have their applications, they are all just different ways of putting together the same principles and i want them to understand that. Morsie Completly agree :cool: In my style demo's I emphasise that the majority of styles out there are born form a...
