I'm just in from the lawn where I have been practicing my casting skills prior to a few days in Marathon soon.
I found a line I just bought for one of my rods is a terrible mismatch. I had to go up to a 12 weight line to make a decent 50 foot cast, forget casting shorter, even "tip" casting. This led me to think about buying a new 10 weight rod, which in turn causes me to ask about casting accuracy of one rod versus another.
Does anyone have observations on this, say you compared one rod to another, or is this a perceived issue and/or marketing hype?
