    Re: Intermediate Line Options

    33' is for the 5 wt, the length goes up as the line wt goes up. I'd have to measure the #9 if you like but it is reasonable. I did know before but forgot now .......seems to be a trend these days.

    Re: How to stop an early acceleration

    Have you tried or do you already "drift" after the stop on the backcast ? One of the casting gurus will explain it better than I can.
