Re: Whole line out!

I’d be interested to know what you listen to Craig. I often do the same.

Cheers, Paul

Re: Elbow Out Style

Hi John, it has to go via YouTube and then embed it here. Alternatively you can send to me and I can do it. We do have a Sexyloops YouTube account for this. I can send you the details tomorrow.


Cheers, Paul

Re: Elbow Out Style

OK I agree that there are times when we cannot make the perfect cast. There are brambles in every direction, we are swimming down the river trying to make a shot, laying in the bottom of the boat hiding under the seat, possibly we have dug ourselves into a rabbit burrow with only our wrist appearing...

Re: Casting into the wind

Yeah well that’s more the “Mulson wind cast”. I don’t really do that. So to answer the questions above I would say it’s line speed, aligned trajectories, aiming onto the water as opposed to above, and very importantly carrying instead of shooting. That last one is key for me, because it’s a hell of ...

Re: Elbow Out Style

That’s a difficult question for me George, because I’ve never seen it as a style and always thought it was a fault :laugh: I didn’t name it and I was surprised to see it being taught. But seeing as it is being taught I was curious to see what the benefits might be. I can think of a few names for it ...

Re: Ring which bell?

Hi Gary, That’s a good question! I use the angle of the line at the beginning of the power snap, and follow that back with my mind’s eye. That’s the angle to ingrain I think. Another way of looking at it would be the angle the rod tip makes to the target and the beginning of the Casting Stroke, afte...

Re: Elbow Out Style

It might be just me but I don’t think this 410A5603-A6CE-4E80-8C28-5ED2ED5F84DE.jpeg is this 4C7721D6-4E52-4DA3-B4E6-57A408CA714C.jpeg I agree, I think just looking at elbow position to name a style is very misleading and we really need to look at the complete movement. But to say it’s like throwing...

Re: Elbow Out Style

Actually you’re right Carlz, it can stay out there. It’s a strange moment because it involves twisting the upper arm around its axis as the primary rod mover, instead of, for example, closing or opening the elbow, or pulling down or through with the elbow.

Re: Elbow Out Style

That’s a good question George. So I’m comparing three styles here. Accuracy when the elbow, forearm and shoulder are all aligned to the target. There is no room for the elbow to go out at all. A distance style where the elbow comes in a straight line through and past the body. The elbow travels thro...

Re: Rotating through the stroke

Hi Carol, for the backcast I imagine that there is a bell suspended above and behind me, directly aligned to the front target. The closer the front target the higher the bell. And even on the longest target the bell is stationed above the horizontal. Having a high and straight aligned backcast is pa...
