    The only thing that concerns me Neil is the super glued connection, have you done a pull test against a spring balance to see at what poundage they fail?

    I have just nipped out and tested it (I don't have a spring balance so used my McLean Net ) Surprisingly it was the Flyline that gave way first at 13kg.


    Still holding out!


    The core of the Fly Line parted at 13kg.

    I must admit that I too was sceptical at first. Dave Whitlock who invented this method advocates the use of Zap-A-Gap and not superglue. I am not sure how they will stand up to prolonged use so its probably good to test them now and again.

    Wow, Im surprised at those results Neil. Equally its great to know as those splices are really neat. I would have confidence in that method now without question.

    What a great posting, 100%. Just for information and not wishing to take anything away from the post, you can order the new Mow Tips via your local Rio dealer on special order. The Heavy and Medium weight are available now and the light ones due in August. Any special order needs to be for the complete set. Most special orders seem to take about three to four weeks.

    I would query the perfection loop, I did some tests earlier in the year, if I remember they broke each time at around 60% bs.

    Glue might help.
