Common Cents System

Recommended Posts

Ahh, modern fly lines, now that's where I pull my hair out.  We had a decades old system to tell us what a designated fly line weight was for the first 30 feet, and from that we could determine whether we wanted to over or under line our rod for a specific application but today, we have some lines that are designed a 1/2 weight heavier, or one full line weight heavier, or with SA's Titan, a full 2 line weights heavier than what was defined by in the past but yet they all carry the same line weight rating.  Much of this is due and in response to the fact that many of today's rods are under rated from how they may have been rated in the past.  You really have to pay attention when replacing a line as it can be quite confusing.

None of it's common cents to me. It's all very complicated. I just want to know it works. I'm glad some of you know why it works though.
