Jacob,

You should consider the T&T line rating as the highest line number of the common 2 wt spey line designation. In other words, the T&T 1510 should be considered to be a 9/10 rod, while the Loomis GLX or Loop are 10/11 rods. If you want a 10/11 rod from T&T, you need to get either the 1511 or the 1611.

All the T&T 2-handers are rated this same way. For example: the T&T 1409 is an 8/9 rod, the 1307 is a 6/7 rod, etc.

Jacob,

Sorry about my misinterpretation of your question. The T&T's weigh a little more than the GLX and about the same as the Loop Blue. The difference between the T&T, GLX, and Loop Blue is so small that it really doesn't matter.

Jacob,

The 1510-5 has section very close to 40" in length. The 1409-5 has sections that are very close to 37" in length.

Hej Jacob,
Here's some T&T rod weights I got from their catalog of a couple years ago. Their probably still really close.
1208-4 7.25oz.= 205.5grams
1309-3 8.10oz.= 229.6g
1409-3 9.05oz = 256.5g
1509-3 9.95oz= 282g
1510-3 10.1oz= 286.3g
1510-5 10.2oz= 289.1g

I just sold my T&T DH1510-5 a few months ago. When I had it, I weighed it on my digital postal scale and it weighed more like 12.6oz. That might not seem like a big difference, but it's about 20% more than that catalog shows.

Blank weight?

Could the "weight" they list be the weight of the blank? This was common practice among cane rodmakers, especially engllish ones that start with H.
