Nice work!
It reminds me when I first got into distance casting I received a lot of help from here and personal coaching from James. Oh and he's good at coaching student to beat himself :D :D :D
:D :D :D I've learnt my lesson now, as soon as Nick gets to mid 120's that's it :pirate:

Re: Q: Fast/slow/tip/butt/stiff/soft rods

Hi Paul,

I think you're missing the point with the MED test - fix the carry at 85ft with a flag of tape on the line, this eliminates guessing the carry. Than see how each outfit feels. Do you think it will be as easy with a #3 rod as with a #10 etc.

Cheers, James

Re: Q: Fast/slow/tip/butt/stiff/soft rods

Hi Lasse, have you tried the same carry with something like a #3? I do remember your test, and Tracy and I repeated it. She'd never previously cast a #5 MED on a rod marked #10, but that's the one that went furthest for her (she did bomb out with the #12 rod though). My distances went with the rod n...

Re: Q: Fast/slow/tip/butt/stiff/soft rods

I have a thought experiment, or better still a real exercise, to consider. If you take a MED #5 and put a flag on the 85ft carry point then what are the experiences of aerialising to the flag on different stiffness rods? Would the carry on a rod marked #3 be as easy as on a rod marked #7 or #10? If ...

Re: Covered topics /how it works

So when I said the overiding reason for loop morph was fly-leg momentum, your objection was what exactly?

Re: Covered topics /how it works

So ultimately the driver for the string pulling straight is the fact that the nut possesses momentum which it loses?

So now, what lifts Anna Hedman's line into the air from where it was sat on the ground?

Re: Covered topics /how it works

Thus that statement probably made perfect sense to them, but it not so obvious what you meant to someone who is familiar with Newton's formulation of his second law. I.e. F=dp/dt not the F=ma version that is generally given in high school physics. So if it not momentum that is pulling the rod leg u...

I didn't ask about density, I asked about viscosity, don't you know the difference?

Re: Covered topics /how it works

I'd say the overriding reason behind loop morph is fly-leg momentum pulling the rod-leg taut James, Are you implying that momentum is some type of force that can pull on the rod leg? I thought it took a change in momentum to produce a force. Gordy Of course not, but you know that. You just want to ...
