Re: Frustrating time casting my new rod

This is purely an opinion based assumption. What may not feel like the true weight of a rod to some might feel perfectly lined with others. For instance I unconsciously double haul to some degree...

Re: Frustrating time casting my new rod

Re: suggest new line for TFO 8' 4wt

I used the exact rod some years back for a couple of summers. I used a SA Mastery GPX WF #4 that performed very nicely. Never needed any other lines.

Re: Rod Weight and Price/Performance

Re: So what is it that makes one rod better than the next?

Bravo!! Bravo!! Now thats what I'm talking about!!! Things to think about like will a lighter rod transfer more energy into a line at the cast? Will oscillation/frequency(responsiveness) make for a...

Re: Clutch - New Fly Rod Company

After rereading my last post I must say it certainly came off more than a bit negatively to say the least. This was not my intention. Like I stated before I had the pleasure of meeting Jeff and Lee...

Re: My real rod weights

Just because CCS indicates that a rod drops between certain perameters in power and action DOES NOT mean that the rod IS that prescribed weight. Although CCS gives us a starting point, there are many...

Re: So what is it that makes one rod better than the next?
