Fly Casting Sport Competition Training

What I would actually suggest here is that you start playing with two styles. Use the compact closed stance style and work on a faster haul. And then switch to open and try some body shift. Switching between the two will make it more fun as well! Cheers, Paul Did that over the last year. I topped o...

1/2WT heavier lines

Paul Arden wrote:Well we’ve been having this discussion. Unfortunately it’s on FB and not here. There are two different views, one is that they can soften. The other is that they don’t!

To be fair, the softening camp is only just larger than Paul’s camp 3.

Stiffness and Tip speed

Hi Daniel

Which of the hand paths did you use? Do you know if anybody checked to see if Paul was a throwback?

Regards

Lasse, does that also apply to glass or will I be able to use my rods for shoelaces in the future?

Stiffness and Tip speed

Hi Daniel I don’t really get the horizontal translation and tend to see the paths that Dirk mapped some time ago: https://thelimpcobra.com/tag/spline-mathematics/ I agree that stiffness is the wrong parameter and also think that maximum tip speed is not what we should be considering. Work done on th...

1/2WT heavier lines

It would be interesting to know. I find everything feels lighter. If you’re not getting enough feel, or if everything feels too fast, then try a stiffer rod - say a 12WT - and then switch back to the 10. I used to think that the timing of the 10 was miniscule. After casting a 12 for five minutes, a...

1/2WT heavier lines

I think if I am able to test now when casting to constant but not very strong tail wind I would do best average using #10 and definitely do longest casts because I believe my haul comes more efficient when rod is stiffer and I think the role of haul has more effect when it is windy. Esa It’s worth ...

So all of their usual rods were stiffer than the control rods. :pirate:

1/2WT heavier lines

I’m switching from #3 cane and glass to the #5 method and #6 S1 Cross throughout the season and have had to abandon feel during the cast until I’ve keyed into the setup. Occasionally, I cast #9 and 10 for salt and pike. Today wouldn’t have been a good day to try the distance comparison, the wind was...
