Re: Rod length to distance, it does not make sense

Hi Bart

I take it you were hauling the hand casts?

Cheers,
Dirk

As James neatly pointed out in his FP “the Big Spring”
Hi Paul

A link please?

Is there a page where one can find archive FP's?

Cheers,
Dirk

Re: Analysing loop propagation

The superbubble looks at casts as swivel cones in 3D And the base assumption is that the sum of all rod tip paths is a sphere ( the superbubble) I enjoyed that again thanks, Michael! Your 3d conceptual is a bit lacking in detail, mainly because it lacks translation, I think. A more realistic D-stic...

Re: Analysing loop propagation

If all we ever do is mathturbate here on a forum, it makes no difference if the loop is a wave or not. However, it has real world consequences for me when I cast and teach, so exploring the concept is not a frivolous pursuit. I use it every time I cast. Well put, Graeme! I, for one, would be very i...

Re: Analysing loop propagation

A jerk is readable in Gordy's pull-back cast rod leg velocity and at the same time an opposite direction jerk is readable in the fly leg velocity - centripetal force explains it for me. Dirk, Not only is it readable, the jerk derived from the measured velocity profiles in that pull back cast can be...

Josh replies -
Mechanical abrasion with something like the SA cleaning pad is the safest route.
I have often wondered about mechanical abrasion. Do most (especially floating) lines not have a coating, which may wear off, or is it the same stuff all the way to the core?

Cheers,

Re: Shooted cast

Dirk Thanks for that video. I have always admired Mel's approach and casting. I may have a hard time tossing the rod into my other hand, but I'll give it a try. My off hand subconsciously turns over and guides the shooting... so I will have to drop the line first. Maybe I can toss it up then rewatc...
