Hi guys,

What is the skyshark equivalent for Dynamic T10 and T12? Would that be 2PT and 3PT?

 Huh

They should be correct weight wise, I'm not sure about stiffness, Skyshark may be slightly stiffer than Dynamic.

Where did you get the 8g weight info for the T10 from?

I thought Dynamic used the type & weight of the rod as the part #

T10
T = tapered
10 = 10g

A T10 IS stiffer than a 2PT, but not lighter. They used to make a T8, which was 8 grams.

At 10 grams the two common choices would be Avia Skinny SUL or Skyshark P90 (non-tapered)

I found a description on the net :"The Utopia is made up ...... Dynamic carbon is an 8g".  I have never seen a T8 so I assumed it was a T10.  T for taper and number for the weight.   Good! Thank for the clarification  Smiley

Not nearly as durable as the Zero Airs. The heavier Dynamics are relatively robust but when you get into SUL sticks quality control is what makes winners. An imperfection that wouldn't effect a heavier stick at all is death for the thin walled stuff. My experience with the T8s was quite a few broken sticks due to non-obvious causes. No clumsy groundwork, gusts of wind or yank and spank piloting. I think the QC on the Dynamic sticks was just not as good back then.
