Lines

The basic formula for any rod is amount of grains over length/feet of the head. Longer heads can carry more grains and vice versa. After that the head taper plays a role. With a 'grain window' low...

Corrected

O.K, fixed that oversight. Thanks.

From what I've read on different boards 12wt and lighter are 38' while 13 and 14wt are 30' I've never had them off the spool so can't say for sure.
