The A2 1510 is a very fast action rod, especially when compared to the LS2 and ARC lines. Compared to the TCR, it has a softer tip, and is actually faster in action. Ditto in comparison to the T&T 1510. The A2 is a bunch lighter than either the TCR or the T&T.
Despite the light weight, the A2 rods have been incredibly durable. FYI, the 1308 and the 1510 A2's are a lot faster in action than the 1409 A2. The 1510 will cast any short belly line a LONG way.
That is the info i needed. By the way( pun intended) the first time i cast a xlt was at a class with you at ben howard. My arc is now a xlt skills improvment tool.short belly lines get me fish long belly lines keep me honest.
Owned the A2 1510 for a bit. Even with my feeble casting abilities I could toss a whole Mid Spey 10/11 (atleast did it a few times). Powerful rod, lightweight, nice price, not something I would want to cast all day though (IMHO).
