I just ordered a standard Windcutter floating. I had missed your earlier post. Wow - that sounds good!
Let's see if I have that right -
1. cut 10 feet off the front taper.
2. cut off the head and back taper from the running line.
3. Put small loops on the cut ends.
4. Reverse the head to take advantage of the short taper/heavy section of the belly.
Question - what did you make your small loops out of so they don't "hinge"?
Please review the above to make sure I got it right... I am interested in trying it.
