Changing student's style

Is it possible to make a radical change in a single lesson that sticks,or is it student dependent? In my experience, it's not possible.. A lesson is just the prelude to practicing on your own. Without practice very few get better Hi Lasse, doesn't that mean it IS possible, if "only" you can motivat...

SexyLoops Hot Torpedo - Instructor Rod

Hi Alejandro, nice to read you. Very good post! I would say I do not care much about MOI, too unless the rod has that much weight in the tip section causing it to "wobble". I have just rechecked and rerechecked the weight of my white tip section: 4,83-4,86gramm (my (high quality) scale has two numbe...

SexyLoops Hot Torpedo - Instructor Rod

Bernd Could you please provide us with a few load / deflection data for the hot torpedo, someting between half an Oz and a couple of Oz (or betwwen 10 and 50 grams). Many thanks in advance Merlin Hi Merlin, http://www.first-cast.de//WebPics/HotTorpedo.jpg Does that help? 10-50g is not much... I too...

AFFTA Line classification floating vs. sinking lines

casting the same head length + same head weight in a) floating and b) sinking feels to me like casting a) a 5wt. floating line and b) the same floating line in 6wt.. Significant difference. Hi Bernd, I really don't think the difference is quite that great, certainly not in my experience anyway. The...

Shooting heads

Hi Lasse, that could be an Echo Classic #7 in 9' ? Anyway I would recommend ca. 19 gramm in 10-11m length in slow sinking. I recommend not to drop in length below 9,5m. If you want it that short 18 gramm might match well. A little longer might work as well of course. If so I would add another gramm ...

AFFTA Line classification floating vs. sinking lines

Hi Ben, casting the same head length + same head weight in a) floating and b) sinking feels to me like casting a) a 5wt. floating line and b) the same floating line in 6wt.. Significant difference. The sinking line has less surface and due to that we will have less resistance. So we could rotate fas...

AFFTA Line classification floating vs. sinking lines

Hi Ben, if you have access to two lines: a) a floating line b) a sinking line both of the same weight around 14-15m and having a similar profile. Then cast both lines (14-15m) with one rod and tell me what line weight you would have guessed for both lines. That might be an interesting test :cool: . ...

Shooting heads

http://www.first-cast.de/Textdateien/RichtwerteSchusskopf.html Hi Ennio, in the left side of the tableau you find weight ranges that match for most rods in each class. For example a 8 wt. rod will typically ask for 18-21 Gramm. But finally depending on the exact stiffness of course. If a 6 wt. TCX h...

AFFTA Line classification floating vs. sinking lines

Hi Bernd, thank you, just one more thing- sorry of changing the subject in your thread, but its only for this last questions. If Im using Barrio GT125 6Wt in a 6wt competition, and I got checked, would I get disqualified becouse of the 11.4g of GT, or would I fit? cheers mike Hi Mike, depends on th...
