When casting, the more line out the rod tip, the longer the cast, the slower the action of the rod will be.
    Sure, but dont most casting situations call for the line to be shot once 10m's of the line is out of the rod? I dont think I've ever seen someone aerialise more than say 15m of line when fishing a 5 or 6 weight? Moot point though really.

    I'm sure we've had this discussion about the dual ratings before so I'll do a search.
    Check your knots!
