Yeah, I doubt a company like Rio has any idea how to make a fly line for throwing big bass bugs on a 7wt. You could probably teach them a thing or two.
Maybe they are looking for some advice on a custom stock too. Did you ever make Splattermatic right with that stock he sent you?
Obviously you are clueless about head length, line weight, fast versus slow rods, and big bugs. And please show me where I suggested anything negative about Rio lines there. What I did was to clearly describe why A Rio line a weight lighter would work better on a slow rod. Those are facts.
And you have to add a topic you are also clueless about. If you actually know something why not stick to those topics...
Bwahaahaa! Feel free to expound upon your thesis that underlining a rod is beneficial.
Also, feel free to clue us all in to your dealings with Splattermatic. As it seems he has called you a crook, and you have never supplied a satifactory response to the contrary...
Last chance for you, moron.
Please explain how overlining a slow, soft rod with long belly is going to help throwing big bugs. The Rio line suggested is one line weight heavy to help newer casters with fast rods. Fiberglass rods throwing big bugs not only do not benefit, but open loops. I suggested using the proper weight line for the soft rod to start.
Underlining is clearly useful in many, many situations. Using fiberglass for example, it produces tighter loops and for someone that actually knows what they are doing presentations can be more delicate and accuracy improved. Doubt you understand...
Stick to things you could possibly understand.
Do you believe that underlining a fiberglass rod will increase line speed? Or make for more accurate casts? Lol
As you obviously incredibly knowledgeable about such things, of course you would realize that to be wrong.
Line weight is a calculation of weight in grains that the first 30 feet of fly line weighs. When the line is a bit overweighted, it requires less of it out the tip of the rod to properly load said rod. If underlined, it will require more that the average 30 ft out the tip to load it.
That is all, the action of the rod will remain the same no matter the line being cast, as will line speed. The only thing that changes is how much line you have to have in the air to load the rod.
So, a line that is a bit heavier that standard will excel in throwing larger, wind resistant bugs. Also will make shorter casts much easier to control.
Conversely underlining a rod will require more line to be in the air just to make the rod work. Tell us how having more line in the air makes for better presentations and tighter loops...
