I didn’t want to take the Today On the Water conversation any further off track so I decided that a new thread might be a good idea.
Wow, 0.2mm 0.3mm tippet is 3X to 16 lb (larger than 0X). Tippet recommendations for my rods are 5X (12 penny and 20 penny rods) to 6X (26.5 penny Suntech GM 53 Keiryu).
I’m still a Tenkara yearling. If I am unable to follow a strong 2200 gram fish and unwilling to let go of my rod and hope the fish won’t take my rod out into the deep water, wouldn’t the rod break and the fish and my line be lost before the tippet breaks?
Is the rod Vladimir using designed to use 16lb test tippet?
