Vector Line Description: The Ballistic Speyline “Vector” lines are designed to be very user friendly, yet lend themselves to advanced casting techniques due to optimized front and rear tapers. Incorporated in the design is the natural growth of line length with line weight, since these proportions are typically inherent in most rod designs, too. This concept of line growth with line weight generally provides the best fit of rod and line, since larger weight rods tend to be longer.
The original design goals for the Vector were as follows:
• Ease of casting (< 4:1 ratio line to rod length)
• Balanced flight characteristics (shootability)
• Strong roll-out and stretch (straight layout)
• Excellent fishability (not too short or long, and integrated holding/running line)
The most significant aspect of the Vector design is its smooth, powerful, and consistent layout performance, even during long casts. This is achieved through balanced proportions of front, belly and rear tapers. All of these features were blended together to establish the optimal flight characteristics which is a trademark of all Ballistic Speylines.
