Swing, Spring, Whip

Daniel/Tobias Thank you both for your considered responses, I will reread your relevant pieces. Gordy We’ve been around this buoy of ICR quite recently, did you manage to solve how to apply a rigid body concept to a flexible object? http://www.sexyloops.co.uk/theboard/viewtopic.php?p=45614#p45614 To...

Torsten I think that obtaining the measurements you mentioned are fairly straightforward and taught as standard practice in the mechanical engineering world. http://www.geocities.ws/hasanpashag/Documents/exp_7.pdf If I was doing it at home, I’d maybe swap out the electromagnetic sensing set up for a...

feel vs. real FP

The Golfing Machine recommend an exercise known as "the flashlight drill" to help folks feel the proper plane in the golf swing. I'm not a fan of The Golfing Machine as an instructional text, but the flashlight drill seemed like a good candidate to use for shedding some light (pun intended) on a tr...

feel vs. real FP

Same here. In my mind, I’m a bit of a Greek god not that stiff, uncoordinated heap of humanity that the camera captures.

Of course you can Graeme but I was going to charge Paul for “Hot Torpedo, get hand jobs from beautiful women you hardly know”

Maybe someone should come up with a new strap line such as "It doesn't matter what rod you buy, learn to use it asshole" It would be up there with great advertising campaigns such as "Boxy but good"

I just took my dog for a walk, I have a terrier not a springer because springers are associated with an evil cult. It should be possible to get the resin from trees to make Paul's rods. I understand part of the resins job is to group and solidify the graphite fiber cloth. Now I've learned we have di...

Merlin wrote:In my world, resin is supposed to be cured. It means that resin characteristics have little influence on the cast. Who quote something out of context?

Swing, Spring, Whip

Hi Daniel I’ve made a first pass through your paper and am struggling to find a practical application but I will go through it again. However, I am puzzled by your premise that the whip effect has been known for years: Today we are aware that there is a « whip » part of energy in a cast. The phenome...
