    Hardy Cascapedia question

    Never owned one of these, but thinking about it in the 10/11. I need a heavy reel to balance a 16' rod. How are the current models? Are they the same as the Mk111? Any of the older models preferred over the current version? Have always read they performed great. Any comments appreciated.

    How did the drop rings work on those old rods

    I remember reading somewhere how the drop rings on those old rods gripped the line and was part of the casting. Exactly how did this all work? Did they grip on the pick up and let go on the forward stroke? Appreciate any historical information. I know some of you fellas have used these...

    Research keeps suggesting that if you're not gonna kill it then you got to treat them gently. https://www.keepemwet.org/keepemwet-news-1/2017/5/13/finsights-translating-the-science-of-fisheries-reports-7

    Loop Cross S1 8130

    Loop Cross S1 8130-4 Have never cast one of these rods, but thinking about grabbing one and giving it a go. I have used the 3 pc LPXe and the 3 pc LeCie rods for a number of years. I have liked them a lot. How would this Loop rod compare to these Guideline rods? Also I'm thinking the lines...

    Guideline 4-D head combos

    Heard a rumor of 4-D heads coming. Got to thinking of how many possible configurations that would provide. Seems like lots and wondering which ones will be produced. If there are 8 possible densities--from floating to S7 and 4 different densities / head, and no head allowed to have the same...

    a danger of tailing glove use

    The glove use here is probably more aggressive and extreme than a typical situation, but still an interesting video making a good point. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8VETvLLa0o&sns=em

    which head?

    I've had great success with my old 2-D Guideline PT's that I cut to length for a desired weight. I'm thinking I'd like to try something a bit longer and see there are still some of the Rio AFS--S2/S3 and S3/S4 about that would give me several extra feet of line. Also I don't want to use any...

    Guideline rods--older vs newer

    I have one of the 3 piece LeCie's and one of the 3 piece LPXe's. Had and used both for several years and like both. I am aware of the breakage issue with both of these rods. Fortunately I've gotten many good years out of both and plan to get many more. But, I am curious about the newer rods...

    Anyone know what these lines are made of? Don't feel like PVC or PU. My Norwegian isn't good enough to figure it out. :D Thanks in advance.

    new vs old

    :confused: Having trouble finding all the differences between the new edition Perfects and the previous vintage models. Most interested in the 4 1/4" but mostly in the metals used and such. What do the newer ones have to favor one over the vintage. Any information appreciated. Thanks in advance.
