Re: Difference is casting rod wts ?
I've found that good casting is good casting pretty much regardless of the outfit --
I agree with Jim, but on the flip-side I really think that sometimes the heavier outfit is less fatiguing on the caster. I've been out several times with a 3 or 5 weight casting into heavy winds and been totally exhausted at the end of the day whereas a 7-8 weight probably would have been MUCH easier to use. To me, it's more difficult to generate high line speed with light outfits in the wind than it is for heavier line outfits. Regardless of the actual weight of the tackle.
