gaelforce line detailed specs question
I have a pretty detailed question on Gaelforce spey line specs for the aficionados on the board. Searched the archives without much success.
Digging around in the box-o-lines I found what I'm guessing may be an early production Gaelforce Equalizer. Box is marked 8/9, 63ft, 677 grains. Color is, from the tip, chartreuse/dark green/orange. I note the current specs on this line are 709gr for the 8/9, so I'm wondering when the specs changed, and in what way. I do know I purchased this line very soon after the 63ft heads started to become available.
The front section (color change to dark green) measures out to about 54', and by about 2-3 feet into the dark green section the diameter is basically at the running line diameter, so I'd call this more a 55-56' head. The front section does weigh around 690gr at that length. Hard to be precise with integrated lines at that length but that is consistent with specs on the box. Interestingly, the label on the box is also hand-lettered 54'.
My questions are :
Did the lines change, or, did just the labeling change? If the lines changed, what are the actual head lengths in the current production lines ?
Are the 9/10s longer in head length ?
Are the 73ft lines true 73 foot heads? If not what are the head lengths say in the 9/10s ?
