without getting too weird/mushy/spiritual, when it is just right and feels just right the experience shifts from the ineffable toward the numinous.
"Numinous" made me laugh. Touche with words. Thank you! :D

Re: Loop shape is domed and tails

A friend is a retired physician. He said that if anything is an impeachable offense, this is it. It is criminal because people are dying. Trump was so concerned about his legacy regarding the economy that he first downplayed the seriousness of the virus to keep the economy going: "It's like the flu....

Re: Loop shape is domed and tails

I'm finding the description of power application to be ineffible. Mel alluded to that when he said "let me try [describing it] one more way ... start strong ... start heavy." I think it's one of those things that you can only experience. Your muscles have to the feel the rod and line while making th...

Re: Differentiating Creep versus Bad Timing

I think what JW was trying to say is to think of supplemental motions as just motions, without qualifying them or demonizing them. Yes, in task 22 the candidate is supposed to identify faults performed by the examiner, among which are poor tracking, poor stop, and creep. But "poor tracking" isn't po...

Re: Differentiating Creep versus Bad Timing

The FFI definitions of creep and drift are confusing when it comes to repositioning the rod in task 2: cast a wide front loop and a narrow back loop. So I pointed out to JW wherein the confusion lies for me: " Drift is rod rotation and/or hand translation during the pause in the direction of the cur...

Re: Teaching drift?

Forward drift could be very useful to get a longer casting stroke for a more energized back cast. I'll give it a go. :p

Re: Loop shape is domed and tails

Hey, Mark, thank you. The answer is ALL of the above. Whatever problems I have, I see, have seen, or will see in others. So whatever problems I can solve will help everyone, including me. I do not do distance casting, although understanding it can only be helpful, if not wistful. Hope your part of t...

Re: Loop shape is domed and tails

Thanks guys! I'd like to pick your brain about dealing with the slack. There seems to be a discrepancy in things I've heard over time, so before I start teaching someone to fix a cast, I'd better get clarity on it. Here are the discrepancies: Some say wait until the line has completely unrolled befo...
