SexyLoops Hot Torpedo - Instructor Rod

Hi Torsten, in regard of the MOI datas I measured the distance between the upper cork (grip) end til the tip. Hot Torpedo: 249cm. Compared to other rods that is quite long! This has it's effect on MOI result... Means a higher MOI of course! I think due to that it is a bit like comparing the MOI on ...

AFFTA Line classification floating vs. sinking lines

Hi James, that's a good point to take into account! Besides that changing from a floating line to just a slow sinking line while having the same profile and the same line weight on both lines results in a huge difference in feel for me. The sinking line feels much lighter... I probably automtaticall...

AFFTA Line classification floating vs. sinking lines

Hi everyone, the AFFTA still uses the old method of line classification of the former AFTMA. In that method we measure the first 30 feet of fly line (without the level tip that is) and then get the weight. The weight will give us the line class. Having the line class should help us to adjust the rod...

I was lucky to get the longest one while he got one of the shortest ...
