If you do not understand what I'm talking about I could make a short video for you.

Jim,

Thanks for the explanation but here is were I get lost.

And Im NOT going for a class record but I want to use a class tippet because Im a novice and we dont have big fish like tarpon in Holland. I just want to make sure that the class tippet is my weakest link and not my fly line or backing.
