My Stream is F'ed

Hi My thanks to all. I believe that we are getting Fish Legal involved but if the case is going sub judice I will keep quiet on that side. The stream is only 15 minutes from my house, so if I am working from home it is a real pleasure to just drop everything and go. I guess I will have to wait and s...

Just for interest sake, a comparison in Dynamic Amplification Factors:

Axial torque improves distance?

I find it hard to picture what you describe but if it equates to harder stop then you will get an increase in frequency. That may be why it has a "rod stiffening" label.

Gordy If you are using an accelerated SHO with a range of accelerations you should see a gain response something like this: http://img33.imageshack.us/img33/7007/paradigmr.jpg The top graph has a line, the bottom is the rod only. I have frigged the model for decelerations instead by varying zeta so ...

we're still waiting for impact assessments but there is little to be optimistic about at the moment

Changing student's style

But this is no different from teaching on the green: "Keep the rod tip down, please." Most often repeated sentence of mine in all lessons for sure. I recognise me here :blush: The point about line control on moving water is well made and at the start of the season I always seem to be chasing the fl...

Gordy I am glad to see that you are now accounting for the difference of an accelerated SHO and was with your explanation until this point: The same work-energy advantage applies when using a "matched" rod to a "matched" casting tempo. The peak acceleration force on the line produced by the flexible...

Spanish experiment

However, a very stiff spring or a very weak spring would not produce opposite results. A very stiff spring would produce the same results as the string driven case. A very weak string would still add to the launch velocity, it just would not be as big as the improvement you would get with an optimu...
