Visited Ian Gordon today to try and improve my casting technique with long belly lines. Tried one of his Jetstream line on my rod to compare it with my XLT. I have to say that for me the Jetstream beats the XLT hands down. It is the finest long belly line I have cast.
Tried the standard line and two of his competition lines, one with a 90ft head and the other with a 100ft head. All the lines were excellent, they turn over more positivly than the XLT for my casting level. The rod he used in the Musto competition was also very impressive, at 17ft 9in, it felt as light in the hand as my 16ft Bruce & Walker.
