Re: Lockdowns where you are

My silver lining on fuel was that I last filled up on 23rd March. I broke that stretch today and filled the tank. No silver lining in the price though - in your terms, it cost me 55p/l. Cheers, Graeme Just checked our price, its very cheap here at the moment, must be 15 years since the price was th...

Re: Double Haul increasing rod flex?

Incidentally Lasse - What is the white dot you use on the line there? I still need to film the snakehead shot. I’m pretty sure I’m releasing close to MCL on the backcast. Thanks, Paul The white dot, is a cube of yellow foam app 2×2 cm :D remember this was shot with the second generation high speed ...

Hi Lasse, no actually I never thought of that. Have you tried it and if so, does it work well?
Hi Johnny

Only the working gloves, great grip, but the reduced feeling irritates me. The thin latex ones, only for lubricating lines with lineslick before competitions.

Cheers

Re: Managing mono shooting lines

Hi Johnny

Have you considered using a thin latex glove? That way your skin won't get soaked :-) Nitril working gloves works too, but reduces the feeling too much for my taste.

Cheers

Re: Double Haul increasing rod flex?

Haha! :laugh: :laugh: That's great to know! So hauling does increase rod flex to a degree at the end of the stroke? :) All the best! Eh, no :D we haul ideally, while the rod is unbending, Good clip to look at: https://vimeo.com/26512805 There's a marker on the line (and one on the tip of the rod), ...

Re: Double Haul increasing rod flex?

Why does hauling increase loop size when it's applied through the stroke for some students? All the best! Hi Nick Does it? To be honest I havent experienced that, what I have seen sometimes is that when starting to learn the haul, all attention goes to the haul and the rodhand ends up flopping abou...

Re: T38 lines

Draw a straight line on a piece of paper, do one slow and deliberate and do one as fast as possible. Which one would be straighter? Same goes for throwing a piece of string, if we want to throw it fast, we need to be really on top of our movements, small deviations bring dire results when they happe...

Re: T38 lines

That is what I find too Alejandro. Others, notably Lasse, uses the same stroke for both, I believe. Even with T38 - and I am very inconsistent with this line - I use both 170 and a more truncated stroke in the allotted time. Sometimes I throw further with one, other times the other. I’ll also buy a...

Re: Essential Level Challenge

What line specs would you suggest then? I was looking at the idea of opening up for 5 and 7 possibly with distance variations. Brick on a string :p Honestly, I don't know, I can completly see the point of the DT, but it is a line that isn't bought so easily, as I said, I haven't got one, I might ha...
