Mallard head weight

Hi Mike,
can you tell me what is the head weight for example Mallard WF4 and WF5 if it's not a problem?
Total lenght is 33ft, same as SLX.  I like to compare  lines  :z4

Thanks,
Vedran

Hi Vedran,

Thanks for your question. We don't base the Mallard line on a head weight I'm afraid. Like most of the other lines in our range, we target international AFFTA line weight standards at 30 ft with the Mallard.

So at 30 feet, we are targeting 120 grains for the WF4 and 140 grains for the WF5.

Best wishes
Mike
