A Torpedo Comp5. There are currently three Comp5 variations. The original Comp5 was the HT6 blank. Version 2 (V2) is the HT10 blank. V8 on the other hand is the HT8 blank. All is clear now!
There are actually three Comp5 V8s in existence. One is with Team China (Zhongxiang) and another with Team Jersey (Ross) and now this one which is off to Dario in Italy.
V8 is considerably more forgiving than V2. V1 I actually find too soft nowadays for this sort of distance work although I often throw it aligned with the MED5 at accuracy rings.
Every rod comes with the offer of personalised instruction. I’m always happy to give advice to all Sexyloops readers of course. However if you are an HT Owner, I can put together a training plan for you – for fun, for better fishing, for competition – and using video we can work together on honing your casting technique.
I do this regularly through email/ WhatsApp/ messenger. If you are interested just drop me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org
Great work from Lee Martell, our Master Rod Craftsman! 🙂
