    Running this on a 13'6" Decho.

    And to the wind comment: I would definitely put the Skagit back on in the wind!

    longer lines are never a bad idea to add to the arsenal.

    Every now and again I throw an accidental lazer loop just above the water, in high winds, and watch it straighten out and plop down somewhere near my target...with amazement. You can effectively use a floating tipped delta in wind...though executing becomes more challenging. But then again, a challenge can initiate near infinite determination.

    Cast on Evan, I think you have the determination.

    My delta standards get some use on the mid length rods. A new rod in my quiver is worthy of the delta long. I'm going to try the pairing as I try to learn a bit more skill with the two hander. A wise gentleman told me to dial in a setup and stop messing with it. I've done that with some success thus far. More success to follow I hope.

    My apoligoes. Party on.

    In regards to the wind topic, I think it depends on your definition of wind. Some winds are so redonculous they require extreme measures.

    Some winds bring a smile :) Toss a high loop and watch the running line melt away..

    Deltas rock.

    Downstream wind. Standing river right on the inside curve. Toss it up high and let it fly. Long wind aided carry and nice long swings.

    Sink tips weight matched to the amount of floating tip you normally use. Works fine for me and I suck.

    The delta multi tip comes with a floater, intermediate, type 3 and type 6 tip.
