    I'm positive my scale is accurate other wise I would have already blown my head off with a hot reload if it was that far off. That being said, measuring 30' and hanging the remaining line off the scale plate could be the error but I doubt by 35 +/- grains. I'm waiting for them to update and post the data hoping someone will validate the info. My initial impression is they have a nice line here but I need to see how it does in the long run. If you have one of these and weight it I would like to hear your results.

    If I had to guess, and I will. It's more than likely that a variety of rods today do not line up with accurate AFTMA "weight" rods. Look at it this way, fly rods change often re-line weight specs, and you need to sell a lot of rods to stay afloat, no pun intended. The rod weights are driven by sales and trying to have lines that are percentages up or down the weight scale which will work on more rods. That drives the line companies to put out lines that will work on more rods. And, around we go. Each year the AFTMA specs become more and more irrelevant making the problem like buying pants. Waist matching inseam etc.

    If you're going to any cutting/splicing of fly lines (very common with spey lines) a 'gram scale' is a 'must tool.'
