Re: Straightening the bottom leg of the loop

Jeez Bart! You've been to two BFCC meetings and broken the #5 record twice - how much more do you want to beat us by? :p :D :D :D Have you thought about laying off distance and practicing accuracy :???: :D :pirate: Haha. I am not sure that I will ever be satisfied. Unless the line travels wrinkle f...

Re: Slow down on the backcast

Hi Bernd. Paul might explain it better. I told my student to slowly come backwards and at around 1 o-clock when he wants to stop the rod, squeeze the handle. I think because he was focused on squeezing late, at the start he was holding the rod gentle and accelerating slowly. To be honest, I didn't t...

Re: Straightening the bottom leg of the loop

Hi Dirk. I will make a video of it.
Would like a setting similar to Paul's video. It shows the line very clear.
Will look for a good place to shoot it and get back to it soon.

Cheers, Bart

Re: Straightening the bottom leg of the loop

I didn't check it. Will do. I am fast as hell! :666: It seems like there is always a little bit of sack in the line. Which is enough to make it tick. I could not find a lot of clear video material, but I found this video of Paul in Malaysia. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9KgWWUGTBM His line looks...

Re: Straightening the bottom leg of the loop

Lasse, I tried loads of different things today.
Also my old style.
Long story short, I can’t carry more than 84ft without ticking the high grass.
That is less than I would like in low wind conditions, but still gives me decent distance.

Cheers, Bart

For me it’s about getting max carry as straight as possible
That is exactly what I am trying to achieve.
Have a save flight.

Re: Straightening the bottom leg of the loop

For me opening up from Pull-back to 170 has always been moving up a gear. I’m sure you’ll find the same. With the shift to stiffer rods the gear change isn’t as apparent but it’s still very clear. Cheers, Paul Oke. Does this relate to the original question? Regardless of the definitions of slide an...

Re: Straightening the bottom leg of the loop

@Graeme Thanks for the video. Do you maybe know how much line he is carrying?

Cheers, Bart
