    Very helpful links. I have a couple questions. Do the major manufacturers rate their lines the same way? The advertised grain weight is only the head weight, whether that be 30ft or much longer? And what is weighed on a DT line?

    Bit of a mixed bag here LT. Under AFTMA only the grains in the first 30 feet are 'counted' and add additional line to that and the count continues to go up. Best example of this would be a double taper line. Every 10'ish foot adds about one line weight in the air.

    The lines above really caught my attention due to the head length, those are amazing. We're talking spey line heads on these things!
