    He-he - in my defence, I have resisted the temptation to add it to this thread... but I couldn't turn down the golden opporchancity that I was presented with by yer man.

    PS: Have I mentioned that copolymer is a nonsensical term?

    Could you translate for us English people? I might agree with you if I knew what it meant

    Damp flies, emergers, sub-surface and a plethora of other nonsensical fishing terms to describe either wet fly or dry fly fishing.

    In an ideal world where data is king, rods would be described by a number, where said number was the period (or as the reciprocal, perhaps frequency), which related to optimum casting stroke period for a given aerialised length of standard line weight/taper that produces the optimum distance. Then you'd be able to judge/compare just how fast you need to cast a rod.
    Also, the flex at this point could be stated in a measurable parameter so you'd know how deep the rod would flex, it could be a percentage or similar. Also tip travel past 11 to 1 at the optimum period.
    These measures together could guide us better than current guidance.

    I'm not saying the above is perfect, but it would be a start of a good discussion and ultimately standard.

    Other sports can agree standard measurements on kit so why not us? We (supposedly) did it on lines.

    Then there's rating fly reels by volume, lines (and also backing) by volume so you can match with confidence, and also having head weights of trout lines by weight.

    There are solutions to these things, if anglers and industry want them.

    There is some footage online of a a guy casting a very fast auctioned rod and a Med/slow auctioned rod, an the footage is superimposed. Surprisingly the timing is exactly the same.
    Someone might have a link to hand?

    Aye, that is a good one. "Emerger fishing." In what way does it differ from dry fly fishing? And if you can come up with a valid answer, then you are not fishing emergers!

    If your front teeth stab you when you sit on them then it might help if you stop talking out your ****.

    I might have misinterpreted your statement, but my logical interpretation seems sound.
