Is this what some people call the rewind cast?

Yep, but not snapped because Lee has two tubes on. Once again that can be aerielised!

But I like that. Nice find! Little bit less control over the anchor placement than with Lee’s helicopter tip path.

The progression should be for a student to learn Lee’s anchor placement first. And then learn to snap it. And then learn to keep it aerielised and let the funk begin :cool:

No doubt about it. The OPST video is nice, though, and the name is pretty catchy too.

It’s around the back and a snapped version of Lees’s cast here. Obviously the key difference is what’s on the end. If I can get someone to video me, or maybe just the boat, I’ll show you a clever little improvement. But right now I’m heading into a rainstorm and it looks ugly :cool:

Despite claims of stuff like this being circus casting, here as demonstrated is a very safe and viable solution to a tricky problem.
Elegant solution to the problem Lee. Nicely done.
