A overall spine is usually not much stiffer than the 90degree side. The spine typically is corkscrew around the blank, but the overall spine is just a sum of it. For a strong anisotropy/asymmetry (ie oval rod cross section) the rod would not go only up and down, but would also go from side to side. ...

This is what we did in the 2013 Nordic Fly Casting Champio...

Seeing a plug or fly line from 100m distance is not too easy. With that requirement, it is quite difficult to find a place to ...
