Welcome! I just finished watching Skagit Master 1 since maybe three four years to know what the 45 decrees is which was referred here. Back then I took a laptop to casting pond few times to learn Skagit casting.

woW !... :D :cool: :D Thanks! (I hope) :laugh: Like I wrote I don't use binary coding but will if I need. Actually binary coding needs the least number of markings and it grows when needed. Perhaps it become clearer when wide stripe is "one" and narrow stripe is "zero". With only four stripes there...
If you want to mark lines you could use binary coding and permanent marker. For example if you have black stripes 7cm, 3cm and 1cm from the end it is 1000101 which makes 64+4+1 so it is line #69 which has own datapage in notebook.
I weight lines and shooting heads using a scale with .01g resolution and write also colors and SH lengths so they are easy to verify if I forget what it is. Computers eventually crash so I use plain notebook. I store lines in marked Zip Lock bags and which are empty are in reels.
I still think that although the effect of rod straightening is not much to line velocity it becomes significant because it adds more energy when it is added to what we first achieve with lever. 0 to 5m/s with 10g line is only 0,125J if we achieve 20ms with lever alone it is 2J. Obviously there is so...

Bernd, I think when rod tip bounces back after counter flex and it ruins line loop when it jerks rod leg back. With much lighter and longer line between head and rod tip it should not ruin the line loop because it forms later. Also shooting head should go to higher trajectory because counter flex do...
If you do another test please use a shooting head and few different lengths of overhang with thin shooting line. It might produce longer launch because thin line should decrease rebound effect although there is more stretch. Overhang with modern backing does not have much stretch and should make som...
