It would be very interesting to se the same casters indoors and measure the lengths.
Hi Sasse

I'd recommend you do a bit of research into a competition they used to have in the States, called "the best of the west" it was indoors and really the spark into why we are throwing longbelly lines in class 5 around :) Especially look into how far Rick Hartmann would throw during practice, I bet he still can....

Cheers
Lasse

Ps. Just to save you some effort, both Steve and Rick are clocked at 125 something during competition, Rick just doesn't have good competition nerves, so would throw quite further during practice....

The first cast is always the best cast.
