Tried the new HM Signature and i think that the new straighter handle will catch new fishermen ;)

I can imagine it must be fun at some of these demonstrations for Henrik with some of the line nerds.....:D:D

"Mr Mortensen, I measured the head length on your 8.5m compact, it's actually only 8.3m, so your technical assertions on your website appear to be flawed assertions or possibly typographical error, but i'll allow slight deviation for the fact that the welded loop accounts for 27mm of it's length, but my conclusion, ultimately, is your recommendations are erroneous"..


Now just cut it out....you know very well the loops account for 25.75mm of the overall line length ;););):eek:

Not blown at all but just to put the picture in perspective there was a 30-40mph gale howling directly downstream ruining everybody's D-loops. You should have seen how the "punters" got on....:eek::eek::eek:

I did indeed sir. Tried the Inspire firstly, followed by the Signature - both rated at 34g. The Inspire was softer with a deeper action compared to the "faster" Signature. Both however were lovely to cast - IMHO of course. :cool:
The Zpey guys couldn't do enough for us - hope you have a good time with yours.

Cheers, M.

You should never meet your heroes, they always look smaller in real life! ;) So come on, give us a bit more of a scoop on his casting!

I know but not in this case :cool: He's a big lad and I'm 6'1" - and he (and his fellow Zpey cohorts) could cast like demons in the howling gale, knew their stuff and were more than happy to spend time with me :eek: and the punters who fancied a go with new Inspire and Signature ranges.

Tried both out and have to say they were lovely..........:cool:
Unfortunately I will probably have to buy a new Signature ;) The new handle design works for me :cool::cool::cool:

Yes but then he pointed out I'd done it on the wrong arm and then promptly took out a court order preventing me going within 200m of him in future :p:D

How did you find his casting stroke and distance achieved? Was he using light heads? What length rod? Would love to see him cast in the flesh and quiz him.
