This is Tim’s second HT10. Having two of the same rod makes a lot of sense, partly if one accidentally blows up when you’re on an adventure but also it can be very useful to have two different set-ups ready to go at a moment’s notice.
The HT10 was developed on both coasts of Australia as well as here in Malaysia. I use a number of lines on this rod of around AFFTA 10.
When it was developed I used a RÍO Tech Tarpon taper that was true to weight and 60’ long in the head (I don’t think this is now manufactured).
Here in Malaysia one of my go-to set-ups is with a SA Infinity 9 (which is 9.5WT).
Basically pick a line according to its actual line weight according to AFFTA and you won’t go wrong. In other words it’s a 10WT. 🙂
Feel free to drop me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org for info on this or any other rod. And remember all HT rods currently come with a free Zoom video conferencing casting session.
