Re: Focus Points

My late big brother once gave me a sign that said "A clean desk, is a sign of a sick mind...." Never had a clean desk :p

And now I'm curious :oh:

Re: Focus Points

If it indeed added what they say it does, wouldn't every bloody competition caster be all over it? Thing was, I asked, and they said it didn't adhere to me, as I was a "good caster".... :D I once overheard one of the ambassadors sell the rod with: You might not cast further, but you'll cast the same...

Re: Focus Points

While I agree that we don't need the equations to cast, without it being quantifiable, you end up with remarks like you'll get 10-20% longer casts by using a rod that has a hollow handle so the blank can bend the last 20 cm's freely... Yes that was a honest prediction by a brand ambassador to a frie...

Re: Focus Points

Thanks but it sounds like the postage might be expensive. :D I'm sure Paul will resurrect the old board soon, so I'll read it then. ;) Cheers, Graeme Emails, with pictures attached, aren't that expensieve 😉 And he did already, hence the rabbithole.... http://sexyloops.co.uk/archivedboard/viewtopic....

Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

I'm intriqued that the loop should fail, so look forward to your clip! Ages ago we had a similar debate here, and I tried just dropping the rod during the stroke, the only time it didnt unfurl was when there clearly hadn't been a large enough acceleration of the line to begin with :) Cheers Lasse T...

Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

He seems to be close to maxed out carrying the same sort of distance. Matty and Christopher are carrying similar line with more efficient style, and neither of them are even approaching their maximum effort, so I don't think the comparison of videos is a valid one. (NB: the fly is passing Magnus at...

Re: Focus Points

If the threads are on the old board, you might want to have a look. I think I have a printout of the manual Carl wrote on it, somewhere at home, will look for it if you want Graeme 🙂

Carl called it whiplash, if you are up for a trip down the rabbithole of the old board 😎

Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

Hi Graeme I would love to see a clip of the loop collapsing after it appears, because you throw the rod forward 🙂 Cheers Lasse I tried to video that during the week but was not successful because I've lost my nice dark background location. :( I'll get a video when I can. Thats a shame, hope you fin...
