Nice Dutch. I need a casting pond like that!

Hi Dutch,

Nice spot there, do you know how far it is to where you were casting? I now have 2 of the lines like you are using. I really like them.

thanks Ard ,first the dtx is e gread fishing rod, the other site is 50+meters mesure with laser.
i think good 50mtr/ 166 feet i think / dont know.
does not matter
the carron is perfect, this line was longer ,cut of 2 mtr i think, becors standing deep in the water can be gif some troubles with the long heads, for deeper wading the midspey
its bether from carron 15-16 mtr / 50 feet head i think weight 47 grams /725 grains.
this line casting like the hell .
its e pity carron James the Boss is stopped ,but i have hear last from friends in norway there go further,i hope so. [ i want olso e rod from this guys ]
i have some lines , but want more of this stuff,olso buy the competition line from carron, but most have first the cnd ultimate 17"11 for competition ,meaby next year i hope.
i like this heavy broomsticks casting near 200 feet /o look out for my shoulders/

IF JAMES CHALMERS THIS READ THERE AR CASTERS FISHERS THERE LIKE YOUR STUFF AS WELL.

sucses/cheers

If cast the 9/10 75 on my TFO DC 1589-4 and it is the best out of the box midbelly I have cast on that stick. Amazing feel, beautiful loops and the running line shoots extremely well.

Yes, I totally love the Varivas...dont know if I could chop a Carron though, ouch, and the running line really is the best I've experienced.

Agreed. The 65' twin line carrons are a great all rounder.
