Bill, There is no guru here, maybe just a wizard. Your strong opinion is such that I have no intention to convince you about a more technical approach of frequency. You have your own and we can live with that, just regretting that a little bit of effort would bring us closer. There is some "sweet s...

Am I correct Bill,if you`re there? ;) Yes, you are correct. As you no doubt know, I have been eaten alive by the guros in another section for my views on frequency.  :D In the next issue of RodMaker, I have answered all these questions about how to use frequency for defining a rod. But first, we ha...

The ERN scale runs to 200. See URRS for values.

Also, see my article on measuring frequency for PPF, in the latest issue of RodMaker.  But Gordy will tell you it does't work :D

Here it is...I hope. Gordy and Merlin, Thanks for writing your recent comments and for putting up with my games. I believe you are both in agreement that I really don’t know what I am talking about, and you may be correct. However, I must have the last words, so here they are. For some reason my fi...

Gordy and Merlin,

I haven't figured out how to send my PDF on this computer. I haven't forgotten you.

Merlin This is a personal message to you. It is long, but I think you will be interested in it. As you well know, the CCS is not a rating system. It is simply a method for characterizing a rod. There are no good, bad, or indifferent ratings. It just tells what it is. ---- Just a bit puzzled here. S...

Bill, Merlin has provided a curve that answers your question  based on its measured normalized spring constant value. Gordy, Thanks for your reply. I will continue my response in that forum. But, can you tell me, what are the units on his absissa? (Remember, there are no fractional values in a sale...

Can the mass loading of the rod be roughly taken into account by increasing the tip load by the effective mass value that is around 3 g for fast 5 wt rods? I would like to follow this. However, I am still waiting for someone to tell me what a 5 wt rod IS and how is different from a 4 or 6 wt rod. N...

it might be helpful to offer MOI, ERN, AA and the overall weight ;).

Are you afraid to give the specs, or have I just missed them?

Sorry for the delay, but I have some work I have to do. I promise to reveal it all to you in a day or two. It will be long.  But, I am afraid some engineers will not be happy.  :D :D

Bill I do not thinks so, we are talking about characterising rod performance Sorry to say, but A=4 Delta has nothing to do with characterizing rod performance. You people have been hashing over that topic for several weeks and have your own forum, please use it. Merlin, Since you are in charge of t...

Gordy, Here is the introduction to a method using universally understood metric measurements and standard technical terms that are sorely lacking and/or confusing in CCS. You still don’t get it, and you probably never will.  However, let me tell you again. Anglers don’t understand YOUR jargon. They...

Marc did you post this here so everyone could correct it for you? No, Marc I didn’t, and it needs no correction.  It is just a few true statements of facts which show how one can utilitize ERN, ELN, and frequency in rod building.  This article was written several years ago when my attention was fir...

Fly Fishing’s Fundamental Formula:  A = 4 Delta - A = 4 Delta

Fly Fishing’s Fundamental Formula:  A = 4 Delta While it is recognized the Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything is 42, and practically everyone is familiar with Einstein’s formula E = mc2, few anglers know the formula which relates rod power and line weight, to the distance cast, frequency,...
