Static Roll Cast - Hauling

Paul, Lasse, Former FFFE and EFFA asked for the line hanging down the tip for at least one second (or more). Pulling the line back it should never leave the water at any point. Inconsistancies in examinations took place like in all organisations of course... Lasse, About the video: 25m beach to plan...

How do you do the (very) short of it?

For me there is most definitely a distinct pause between casting strokes, even with a very short line length. Yes true. You can't change direction without stopping and I pause too but in relative terms it is indistinct. Compare an 80' carry where you have time for a sandwich and half a pint between...

Static Roll Cast - Hauling

I don't buy the hauling theory, because Thomas is casting the static roll over 20m *with* a haul. Hello Torsten, Thanks for your fine thoughts! ;) I am not yet sure, what exactly you are referring to by "the hauling theory", but I am pretty sure about some facts: Hauling does shorten the rod-leg in...

Hi John,
Can you describe how you do it in detail and what it does for you?
Thanks

Static Roll Cast - Hauling

Hi Graeme, In order to get max distance, releasing the line early is a huge catalyst! Like Paul I had to learn the 18m EFFA static roll with no line behind the tip at the start of the delivery stroke. I got stucked on 18,5m. Then by accident I hit 20+. Early release was the accident. Never had to tr...

How do you do the (very) short of it?

Hi Mark, https://vimeo.com/101840776 I don't cast short lines in just one style. The first 3 in the vid all work fine for me. Which one I choose depends on my tackle. Pretty soft rod + short but heavy line and I use less wrist. Stiffer rod more wrist. And then it depends on the length of leader. Lon...

Static Roll Cast - Hauling

I ask, Paul, because I was reading about teaching the single haul. Too often I have seen it being taught in a complete wrong/bad way or for a purpose, in which I'd hardly ever use it. Seems many instructors though teach the single haul for the roll cast. I have little experience in teaching the haul...

Static Roll Cast - Hauling

Hi Graeme, Hauling means to shorten the rod-leg in the D. Thus for the same momentum one needs significant more line speed. That's why hauling for many (me too) doesn't increase max distance. Lasse did recommend to haul only in the overhang. Good point but still most would end up with less mass bein...

Static Roll Cast - Hauling

Hi everyone,
Do you haul your static roll cast? If yes, what is the reason you haul that cast? If not, then why not?
Thanks,
