K-Tom,

Mine are leave it well alone, introduce something nmore interesting like the 100gm :eek:

I fish with the 175gm and when you get it on the field it feels like casting a "Dead Cow"

Only my thoughts - Led. ;)

When fishing here on the island for drum and stripers in rough weather with a heavy current running, 8oz. is the minimum to 12 oz. max. Reason for learning the back cast.
2-4oz are the norm for summer calm water small fish, fishing. the 175gm would be closer to what we fish with than the 100gm.

I understand where you are comming from but everyone doesn't fish on Hatteras Island or cast a 6-12 oz.weight that often.I really don't think we would be doing anyone a great service by making the 175 gr. a regular event at our tournaments. We can see how others feel about it but I agree with the dead cow statement by Andy.
As for the 100 gr.that seems a little light and could require different equipment and who needs that? Notice I said could require different equipment.I am not sure of that.
U.S. casters have come a long long way in the past few years and I beleive more weight classes would just slow that progress down.That is just my opion.
Thanks for your suggestion.See you in July?

Going to try and make it, but ain't going to promise anything. Who knows if I don't show just maybe a certain other backcaster will show up. Will be there for sure in October.
