Re: Hypothetical question on mechanics

Wow! I am going to guess that Stephan does not cast like that when fishing from of a canoe. But I really like how he drops his elbow to include the shoulder muscles on his delivery stroke. I have been trying to adopt something similar and it ain't easy! I'm going to guess that Stefan doesnt need a ...

Re: Throwing a chicken, or taking a dog nobbler for a walk

Chicken, give me mono and I'll throw it furthest, no problem. Dog nobbler, give me a flyline and I'll throw furthest. Haven't found a threshold for where a fly goes further on mono than flyline, but it will be in the low numbers I guess 🙂

Re: Whole line out!

Hi Craig! Unfortunately I let a sales guy talk me into these AirPod things, which fly out of my ears when casting and are impossible to find in the snow, so I’ve given up on music for the time being. I need to buy proper headphones with wires. The Pixies ‘Debaser’ always leads to tailing loops. :D ...

Re: Hypothetical question on mechanics

I've met plenty who has it the other way around, great backcast when they look, and fat open thing when they don't, even a good bunch of instructors from rookie to high profile "gurus" 😉

Re: Rod Database

Build variance mostly, some might be measurment errors, but having measured a bunch of them, and having friends who have done so too, those numbers are sound.
