Hauling modeled

Thanks< Merlin. I see where you are coming from. I was looking at it from the perspective of my limited understanding of Newton's laws of Motion which, I would assume, any calculations of friction would have to be based upon, and which are the things which the caster can apply at will with both the ...

Hauling modeled

Hi Merlin, I agree that a lot more slow motion videos need to be taken and analysed. But it’s incredibly time consuming – especially if you don’t have really good editing software and so on. And on top of it, to analyse really long casts you need a really good caster, and need to get the results of ...

If you tried to accelerate your car to 25 mph in 0.2 seconds, you are likely to blackout. :pirate: Both of mine would stall out, and I'd get broadsided. :D I accelerate them with my foot on the brake then release for fairly quick starts. To my layman's thinking, it shouldn't really matter where dur...

Fly rod deflection

I just did here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWNXcbrxDEE if that's what you are talkiing about. I can't watch vimeo for some reason unless they are imbeded. I don't understand what the point is of what he is saying. It seems to me that he is saying that a rod which is straight at the beginning o...

Hauling modeled

What a great thread ! It's a shame I've been so preoccupied in recent years wih other issues that I haven’t been paying attention to what’s been happening in the casting world. There has been a lot going on with slow motion analyses that’s for sure. Gordy, those clips are superb. This is my kind of ...

Video camera

Heck... do you suggest, that my Canon 6D & 7D are redundant ? Tom I don't know anything about photography, Tom, but those cameras sound too high tech for me. I need something with only a few options to mess up. What I was after was a high frame rate without a fish eye lense. I would have much prefe...

Hi Walter, You’re off a bit on the GoPro capacity. They, at least the new ones, will accept the fastest 64 GB SD cards made – fingernail size like Simm cards That’s 64,000 megabytes not 64 megabytes. But you might need to hook up to a golf cart battery bank and hold the camera with welding gloves to...

Well if you ever get over here in May or June, bring it with you. I got a good spot for you to test it on animals.

saltwater retrives

I suspect something similar might apply in the Salt too, for example I don't think you want a crab moving towards a permit! In fact I'm sure that applies to all fish - a popper swimming at a Snakehead will completely spook it. In the US they talk about "feeding the fish" I think this is a good appr...
