Default Re: Wulff TT more reel space than WF?

Though the Wulff WFTT is a half-size heavy line, it has thinner running line than most WF lines, thus taking up "average" capaciaty on a reel. There are many who swear by this design but I'll caution a few things: 1. Unless you are extending all or most of the head during a cast it does not load some rods very well, not great for short casts with a long leader. 2. the abrupt change in diameter from the rear (thickest) part of the head to that thin running line can yield a "hinge" when mending or reach csting. 3. Due to its small diameter, the running line tangles more than some others.

Just muinets ago, I finished winding one off a reel and re-rigging it with an extended head, long rear taper design.
