Thanks for all the tips and advice everyone. As ever many different opinions, unfortunately Sportfish don’t show Airflo 40+ as a stock item so can’t pop up to Reading for a try out. As I don’t have any appropriate old lines to chop up, I found an expert ‘lake distance’ online for £37 delivered so I’ve gone for it, can always resell on here if I don’t get on with it. I also have a Hardy Zephrus Salt 7wt rod to try it on too. James’s quote that you can’t buy distance in a tackle shop is loud and clear, I’ve looked out a little used selfie stick and found it has a remote and built in tripod. Already used on the nearby football pitch and some clear faults to work on!
