To satisfy these requirements in one rod is very difficult so rods are made which place more emphasis on one particular quality often at the expense of the others. A rod with great casting qualities will tend to be stiffer and will be less forgiving when fighting a fish so it needs to be used with a heavier leader - which may be more easily detected by the fish. A very flexible rod can be used to cast slowly and accurately will soak up the energetic activity of a small fighting fish but will not cast the line very far and will be unable to handle a large fish. A travelling rod that can be broken down into five or more pieces to fit in your suitcase will have to sacrifice qualities of flexibility or sensitivity. Compromise is often the key.
The grain is the only common weight in both these systems and thus there are a different number of grains to the pound depending on which weight system you are addressing. Confusing isnt it? There are 7000 grains to the pound avoirdupois which is divided into 16 ounces of 437 grains each. There are 5760 grains to the troy pound which is divided into 12 ounces and then into 20 pennyweights of 24 grains each. Both the avoirdupois and the troy system were in use in different parts of the world at the same time with different actual weights for the pound and ounce. This is the reason why the grain was chosen to weigh fishing lines - it didnt matter which weight system you normally used - the grain weight was the same. Just to complete the confusion and for those of a metric disposition 1 grain = 0.0648 grams. So it was unimportant where in the world you were and what the local weight system was old fly lines were described by their grain weight which measured the weight of the first 30ft (9.14m) of the line. Each line was individually weighed and could have a grain weight that was unique to it and might be only slightly different from another line. This idea of weighing fly lines in grains overcame the problem faced by the British colonials who might be in India or South Africa or in many other outposts and needed to order their fly line from the home country as no lines were made in the country they were currently residing in. They could ensure that they were ordering what they needed without reference to their current countrys weight measurement system.
