Bamboo rods. Casting into the wind

Perhaps you should make another carbon rod more "bamboo like" adding weight to the blank so the difference would become easier to see. For quick test you can wrap a heavy line one or two wounds between guides all the way. However it disturbs hauling. More work but allows better hauling is to wind fe...

Bamboo rods. Casting into the wind

For same casting "workload" you can cast heavier line and also use stiffer carbon rod to achieve much better performance than with bamboo rod.

Spanish experiment

Sorry, I wrote weight when I meant falling mass. This is how I understand rod function just now: When a rod handle is mounted to an angle somewhere before RSP with 10g line and then "spring" is bent and line is released producing 10m/s line speed it is 0.5J Then when you cast the rod "the lever" acc...

Spanish experiment

It seems to me that we have two very different propositions: - Flexible rod vs. broomstick: For the same angular acceleration of the butt more energy input with the flexible rod, so it results in higher line speed. - Falling weight with spring vs. falling weight without spring: Different linear acc...

Haul adjustment, when to stop rod & line hand

Perhaps "haul through RSP" solely accomplish that just before:
1. haul hand had highest velocity when forearm was perpendicular to fly line and
2. rod hand travel and
3. wrist "flick" had their peak and
4. rod was straightening fastest?

Thanks Gordy! ! continue reading and try to understand.

But stiff rod is far from actual casting so perhaps comparing two spring setups would prove something?

Spanish experiment

Earlier here or in old forum thread for someone it was important to have same force input. Actually I don't know what you are trying to solve here? Is there someone who does not believe that when spring is "in tune" with weight and brick it isn't more efficient than plain string? Or when the tune is...

Why don't you connect both bricks to the same weight to have equal force?
