Re: Casting with guides out 90 degrees

Hi James, Certainly as Graeme points out the problem disappears with lined rings. With four piece rods and wire rings I twist the top three sections out to 45 degrees and keep the reel in plane. With two piece rods it’s more problematic, but I only encounter those in distance comps - then I use the...

Carry and Distance

Hi Bart, I'm definitely closer to your carry for my best distance. Probably because I struggle to carry any more :closedeyes:
Need to work on improving this. Had some good advice from James, Paul and Lee over the weekend.

Let me know how they work when you try them out Mike, if they're a success I may copy your idea and make some myself. If the fluff/fly bounces you could maybe tie it using hook and loop velcro :D
