I used to be a tournament caster in then UK, slinging big sinkers down a filed and measuring distance in comps. Furthers cast was 273 yards with a 150g lead. The reels are magged and super tuned so I know a bit about that.



So Nathan... welcome.  I guess it's OK to use yards and grams in the same sentence? Cheesy Cheesy

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

Always up for some banter lads! everything turned out great in the end with both countries now being the closest allies in the world.

It was a bit greedy for the brits to fight a war 3500 miles away with the Atlantic in-between. We were at war with the frogs at the time, who were only 22 miles away. It was a bit too ambitious to try it with the USA as well Huh?

The most interesting times in the history of the world as far as Iím concerned.  I canít get my hands on enough books on the subject.   One of my favorites, The Verney Family Letters.  One day I hope to visit Middle Claydon House.

Hi. Some did and still do. Easy to convert and low profile so you could get a good grip on the spool. Like the Black Max series, they are like hens teeth in the UK as most have been chopped and butchered.
