Bamboo rods. Casting into the wind

Yup, there's more to it than just stiffness :cool: 5 rods of differing ERN Sage XP 590: ERN 5,5 AA 70 Sage TCR 590: ERN 7,4 AA 72 Streamstix T5: ERN 9,0 AA 75 Echo ION 1090: ERN 11,6 AA 75 Echo 3 1290: ERN 13,7 AA 70 Line ED 5 weight (well used ;) ) I did first 5 casts with each, starting with the X...

Bamboo rods. Casting into the wind

Morning Lasse, I agree with that. That also matches with what (I think) we have seen in Norway. I don't agree, that ERN (stiffness) as well as rod length don't matter for distance. But that is what the test results tell. The one rod being 10cm shorter than the others showed a higher avg. distance t...

Haul adjustment, when to stop rod & line hand

So yes, in my experience the biggest steps in increasing my technique never came with the amount of training but with the increase in knowledge. I think, if I know what to train, it makes it much more successful compared to training without the focus on what to improve exactly. Greets Bernd Complet...

Bamboo rods. Casting into the wind

There is a huge difference between a straigh leader and a collapsed one. The straight one needs alot more speed at distance than the collapsed one. And it's quite clear that one throws furthest with the rod one is most familar with, or the stiffnes one is most familiar with. Hi Lasse, the differenc...

Bamboo rods. Casting into the wind

Hi Aitor, I do not believe in such a test: Highest avg. 30,12m Orvis T3 Lowest avg. 29,06m Streamstix T5 1s up to 3,18 :ninja: Problem is when you measure until the fluff: Leader straight = + 2,5m & leader collapsed = -2m So only with the leader you can produce 4,5m in difference while lines end is...

Haul adjustment, when to stop rod & line hand

Hi Lasse, You are right, we have a bit of a different view about where the tip path significally changes in relation to the trajectory you are achieving in that cast (in your video linked above): :) http://www.first-cast.de/WebPics/HaulingLaunch.jpg Greets Bernd p.s.: Paul, is there a possibilty to...

Haul adjustment, when to stop rod & line hand

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHH :evil: Well that was one post down the drain.... Here's the shorter version. Hi Bernd I think it's safe to say we have a different oppinion about when the rodtip changes direction significantly :D Here's a pic from the first ...

Haul adjustment, when to stop rod & line hand

Hi Bernd I would like my peak haul speed to happen after the stripper has hit it's peak speed, and is slowing down. I really like it to hit peak as the rodtip changes direction, so I would get the highest linespeed. This would also be the point I'd like to release the line. [vimeo]26927235[/vimeo] W...

Hi Bernd

Why do you want haul and stripper to coincide in Max speed?
