Thanks..well what can i say... if it were`nt for the line
What is the record with the #5 line that you now of?
Tight lines Mikael
142 is an awesome cast with a #5 line
I think Jonothan Tomlinson threw a 5 line 143' something last year but not in competition, not sure if it was a MED, GT140 or a Snowbee XS-ED.
I've mainly been casting the GT140 WF7, hitting high 130's with that on a #7 rod on a good day with the odd cast going a bit further but not consistently. The line carries much better than an MED or Rio Tournament, much more stable in the air, my carry is 6 - 8' more with the GT than the MED. Hope to get some video soon too to analyse my forward cast, if the video comes out any good then I may post some.
The 5 line fishes very nice, turns over very well and is superb for presentation and slack line casts.
Mike, give me a shout when you have 5's back in stock!!
