I saw on another BB that there is consensus for spey line designations for heads, short bellies, medium belly and long belly lines that will be soon adopted by manufacturers.
Are you suggesting Carron lines are wrong in the line designation?flytyer said:It's about time! Now much of the confusion about what wpey line should I get for my rod will simply go away. Likewise, the huge differences in line weight of lines of the same belly length and line size designation (re: Carron) will also vanish.
Here's my take on it with dims from my 10/11 floating line (sorry, I don't have an intermediate). Design is a somewhat continuous taper from tip to the thickest part of the belly at about 37'. It's then pretty level until 49'. Then a long (20') taper to the running line. Weight of the first 30' is 280 grains, which is exactly the spec for AFTM #10 single-handed lines. At 49', weight is 600 grains. At 60' it's 785 grains and at 69' it's 835 grains. I might be off a little, but these dims and weights are pretty accurate. Hope it helps.
