    Default CCS data chart ?

    Does anyone know of a data chart for the Batson fly blanks? RX7 ?

    I want to compare the 9' 5 wt. and 8'6" 4 wt. to the Sage One and some of the others. I built a 8'6" 4 wt.(Batson) and I am pretty impressed with it casting , had a chance to toss a One and was having a hard time feeling the difference inside of 45' or so ....

    Any thoughts are welcome!

    I can't help with the Batson, but I do have a Sage One 8'6" 4wt. that I've measured myself.

    Its ERN is 5.6, and AA is 70 according to my measurement.

    Use it wisely.

    Thanks Vince & Plecain,

    That gives me a good source to work with. The 8'6 RX7 isn't in the DB but the 9' is a in 5 wt. The Batson's all seem to fall in AA = 64/67. I am focused on tip recovery which seems to be less with 8' than 8'6" at least with the RX7 and Orvis rods. Too bad there is no frequency data avail. I see Dan Craft Sig iv comes close to the One. I am not sure of the tip bounce on the 8'6" One , I don't have one on hand to cast.

    Thanks

    Have a couple Batson rods that I've built, I'm more impressed with them every time I cast them. Great blanks, and the price is right.

    I am having a hard time finding a flaw with the one I built other than some tip bounce but I am not so sure that isn't normal for a 4 wt. with 40' of line out or it could be in my casting stroke. Either way it is not a major bounce. I have a 8 foot blank that seems a tad stiffer I might build up to see if it is better. Anyone one else have opinions on them ?
