FEATURED GEAR

  • Leader: Sensation Competition Black 20lb (0.35mm)
  • Weight: P5 (88 grams) LB Weights

We recently went out to cast a couple of rods and measured the distances. Here’s what we’ve found:

  • Date: Tuesday 26 October 2021
  • Venue: Rietvlei Dam, Pretoria
  • Time: 08:00
  • Temp: 22°c
  • Air Pressure: 1021 hPa
  • Wind Speed m/s: 3 NNE
  • Conditions: Overcast
  • Reel: Okuma Aventa 5000
  • Main Line: Sensation Pro Series 5lb (0.18mm)
  • Leader: Sensation Competition Black 20lb (0.35mm)
  • Weight: P5 (88 grams) LB Weights

Conditions were perfect for distance casting with a light breeze from behind. Although this aided in casting distances the difference in distance between the rods could still be taken as a guideline of their capabilities no matter the wind speed or direction.
