Last night the FFi held a Zoom classroom event on "North American casting styles".

There were around 90 participants, so surely there were some folks on here that attended. Lou, was that you?
Yes it was

Re: Maximum Rod Bend

Did some casting today. When I try to haul around RSP1, my loops were narrow. Also, my line seemed to be more energized... faster perhaps. When I try and haul around MCL my loops did become wider. Also, my line speed seemed slower.

Re: Maximum Rod Bend

When I can get back to casting...winds have been howling. I will time my haul close to RSP1 and try to tune my haul at MCL. Tried this before, but wasn't convinced, that, I developed more tails trying to haul as close as possible to RSP1. Also, not slipping as much line out during my bc seems to be ...

Re: Maximum Rod Bend

Thus since the length of line from the first stripping guide to the tip follows the rod the assumption is that the distance from the hauling hand to the first guide+the line length from the first guide to the tip + the length of line from the tip to the fly is constant. That means a plus distance c...

Re: Maximum Rod Bend

Hi Lou, You started this thread from here: When teaching hauling we usually mention the two major benefits of hauling...increase bend and increase line speed. ... These are some of the secondary thoughts, don't expect answers, merely thought provocing. Lou After nearly 60 posts, what are the benefi...

"The haul adds load." Taken from the SL post on "Hauling Modeled" Worth the read, BTW.

Is this the same as saying this "load" contributes to rod bend?
How can we apply load and not bend the rod... hauling does not bend the rod.

Re: Maximum Rod Bend

After reading the The Rod & The Cast by Grunde Løvoll and Jason Borger article. The one picture shows that MCL is past the position when the rod is about perpendicular or at MAV. Which is when I've been trying to begin the haul. I'll be changing that. If we wait to start the haul at MCL, then I agre...

I use the rod butt passing the perpenular as a visual indication of when to start accelerating with the haul ith conviction.

Cheers, Paul
Paul,
I try to use the same when hauling.
So, MCL is maximum rod bend for the cast?
