### Re: Hauling vs. None hauling

Thanks Merlin,
too late today to get this into my head. Will come back to your findings asap.
Good night for now.

### Re: Maximum Rod Bend

That’s a good question! I think we want a very high line speed around the point when the rod tip deviates from the line path’s trajectory for comp distance. So that is pre-RSP on a 170 cast. I believe the haul accelerates after this too but if we save it too late we miss the most important part. At...

### Re: Q

I don't think we can for example match max possible line speed of the line thru the guides and max tip speed to happen at the same time. Does that make sense to you? I don't see why you could not do just that since it comes down to a matter of timing between the actions of the two hands. Even bette...

### Re: Maximum Rod Bend

Good posting, Gordy!
That makes all sense to me.
Thanks.

### Re: Maximum Rod Bend

But then, again as Bernd has pointed out, there is the angular relationship between the line and the stripper guide. It gets a bit curious for me at this point. It seems "hauling" is not optimized until the stripper guide is perpendicular, or beyond. And the guide could have gotten there via rotati...

### Re: Maximum Rod Bend

It wasn’t me who brought up the concept of pulley. That I believe was Gary and Morsie. However in as much as a pulley can change the angle of the force (not double the speed?!) I pointed out that any angle the rod makes to the line during the haul changes the angle of the force and therefore the ro...

### Re: Hauling vs. None hauling

Thanks Merlin. Sounds plausible. Just the arc can, but doesn't have to be smaller for the hauled cast. I can also increase force application within the same arc for the none hauled cast to hit the same final speed. Personally I do both mostly, reducing the arc slightly and reducing force application...

I am pretty sure that the “peak stripping guide speed” occurs early in the cast, somewhere before the end of the translation part of the cast,
Merlin,
Why would that be?
I thought rotating the butt section is what speeds my stripping guide most?
Thanks

### Re: Maximum Rod Bend

Hi Merlin, thanks for your fine answer. So by "hauling speed" in your charts etc. you usually refer to the speed of the line hand relative to the stripping guide (not line speed of the line thru the guides), right? What do you think about percentages of max line speed of the line thru the guides don...

### Hauling vs. None hauling

Hi everyone, when comparing a hauled with a none hauled cast, I think most fly casters would tell the hauled cast to be more efficient. There are of course different effects having an impact on efficiency for both casts. One effect/difference I yet haven't read anything about, that I have thought ab...
