"Not all the fish are on the bunker, schoolies are very focused on them and although there are cows among them to pick one out from the crowd has been difficult at best. All of the keepers...

Joey --

Whassup, pal? Where are you these days -- law school, heaven forbid?

I'd suggest splitting the difference and getting the 13 Wt, which is 550. Those Airflo heads are 475,...

Funny, but I love the 990s and use them quite a bit. I would say that in my experience they hold fish better than some other hooks I've tried, but, to be fair, I haven't used them with upside down,...

Hi -- Just to clear up any confusion, I don't think the Outbounds are going to be relabeled. The 13 and 14 weights are what I think others are talking about for two-handed overhead casting. Both...

I've seen Chapin choked in with peanuts, a school that stretched literally for a mile and had crashing birds and fish for several days. The school was so thick that it was tough not to snag the...

Gotcha -- didn't know that they were going to have a two-hand designation for these things as well. Good to clear up any ambiguity so people don't buy the wrong size. Now, what size will work for...

I bet you got the heavier, earlier one like I did. The correct specs are on the RIO site for production models. Also, I bought one of those little $15 scales off of Ebay so I could weigh these...

Caution on line ratings

As to the correct Outbound for the 1111, be aware that the grains have changed from some of the earlier prototypes some received before the lines were officially released in stores. So, for example,...

And ... as to the production Outbound lines, Simon G. recommends the 13 wt. (at 550 grs.) for the Atlantis. That 13 wt. may actually be lighter than some of the 12 wt. prototypes some have tried.

FYI -- I just received a RIO prototype of the Outbound, a 12 weight intermediate head and floating running line. The listed grain weight is 595 for the head, not 510. After I cast it, I'll try to...

FYI, the Airflo 12 wt. heads in intermediate and DI3 are both in the 470 grain range -- I weighed them and the Rajeff sports site confirms those numbers. I've seen Andrew from Tightlines cast those...

Another option

I have a Watermaster, which I purchased used when in Montana one summer. It differs from pontoon boats in that it is a frameless raft, half of which is open bottom thru which you stick your legs and...

In case Simon doesn't answer, I think I heard that they're making it in the full range of sizes, so I'm sure there's a 9 and 10. Might be just the ticket for the lighter Atlantis.

John H. mentioned that line to me, but I didn't realize it would be made with enough grainage to load the double-handers. Yahoo! What densities will you guys make it in --...
