Default Common Cents Sytems, who is using it?

I posted this in the general section but maybe it belongs here instead.

I have tested a few rods with this system and most were close or within a line weight, but and 8wt rod I tested is turning out to be a 10wt according to the scale.

Is anyone using this method to determine proper line weight? What kind of results are you seeing if so?

Thanks

Personally I have tried different rods and I use the ones I like. I don’t really get caught up in all of that. I know some people worry about that, reel weight etc. I am not one of those people…….


Just like I don't bother with learning the latin names of bugs

The CCS system sort of thing goes out the window depending on your casting/fishing. If you intend to toss 20 feet of line on a Sage TCX, you might have
chosen the wrong rod. However, if you're fishing demands throwing line at targets 50-60 feet (and even further), the 6wt TCX will begin to come into its element, where a soft 6wt rod would require more skill, or perhaps still not handle the long length of line.

I would have to agree with Sasha. I classify rods according to good or bad, and that's determined by the type of fishing I'm doing. You could analyze your rods from tip to butt, but a trip to the stream is much more revealing IMO.
