Stiffness and Tip speed

They were credited at the end of the report Lasse Stefan Siikavaara, Magnus Hedman and Joakim Karlsson who together with the first author performed the casts that the analyses are based on. The report talks about the rods had different stiffness and actions which implies that CCS measurements might ...

Paul, I’ve only been responding to your point that your technique is not as good as it was 12 years ago. If you think you are doing everything possible then that’s great.

Paul, the following is an extract from a sports science paper that I was sent The term technique is used widely but it is rarely defined. Writers presume that their audience has an understanding of the term; however, without a clear definition, it can be misinterpreted or misused. A general defiitio...

Fly Casting Sport Competition Training

I’m out 3-4 times a week but mostly short sessions to clear my head, no more than an hour, I use it like some people use Tai Chi and mainly focus on control and presentation.
