How to adjust the wrist?

It already exists, I don't know, but I would still like to give this indication, I have always seen, in the back cast, open the wrist by turning to the right (if the rod is gripped with the right) or block it, perhaps it is a habit, I too I often do, but what is the fastest way to turn the wrist? As...

Re: Simplified Casting Physics Document

Perhaps it is easier to have a document that indicates what are the errors in reading our eyes and sensations.

I've tried casting a rod without a reel, and it doesn't let it damp very well, so your experiment is interesting :cool: maybe casting Chinese style damps the rod differently with the mass more out to the side?

All the best

Thanks for trying.

Re: Change leverage

It’s an incredible way of reducing casting arc. I think for teaching a beginner the basics of casting arc and narrow loops there is potentially great value in this setup. The only draw back I can see, is that if you drop the rod by mistake you either smash the butt or it sinks to the bottom of the ...

Re: Change leverage

I'm not a physicist, but it depends upon where the fulcrum is. As long as the fulcrum is on the end and the force is near it, it probably remains a class 3 lever. https://images.app.goo.gl/4VFhJRx74eSL9swq8 Thanks Carol I also think it's as you say, it's probably just balance adding weight, probabl...

Change leverage

The question might be silly, increasing the weight of the rod heel and decreasing the weight of the tip, moving the grip point, would the lever change class? has anyone tried?

Re: Waypoints

Hi Ivan, Depends what you are comparing here. If we are to land the anchor on the water and then compare snaplift switch to switch without the snaplift, then the snaplift goes further. This is because of the way the anchor folds over and lands. We are talking several metres difference with trout ta...

Re: Waypoints

I use this thing from time to time to change direction, but for a normal cast it does not work, it is dangerous and also not very efficient, if we compare it to what you could do without using it, if you want to have a good cast, the fly or line must still lay back, thus eliminating the utility, I ...

Re: Waypoints

Not perfect Dirk. Had to deal with a front coming through so had to put myself between the camera and the loop. These are aerielised “anchors” which is immediately what came to mind when I read your first post today. [media] https://youtu.be/X_BCPO4ff0A[/media] Cheers, Paul I use this thing from ti...
