A Thread Thread

Hi All Up until recently I have paid little or no attention to the thread I use. Originally everything got tied on 6/0 uni, then 8/0 and the (very) occasional 12/0 stuff. I still use the 6/0 for lots including pike flies and also Big Fly stuff if i need to build a big head. So, I know all you super-...

OK, I think we're maybe talking about different things Malik. Your video shows me that you can delay rotation and still have room left for a thrust movement.

A case of having your cake and eating it! :cool:

The BIG THREE

Hi Malik Just checked the "anatomy of a thrust" video. Well, if you watch from 40 sec to around 50 sec it looks to me like very minimal - even delayed - rotation at the start of the forward stroke. Difficult to tell from that camera angle though. It certainly doesn't look like early rotation. :???: ...

Considering this answer, with which I agree in a large part, do you not believe that the other formulation "rotation at the right time", which is also proposed by Bernd in his post number —  which number by the way :blush: ? * — is better than "rotate late", even if more vague and less prescriptive...

Interesting comment Malik. I agree that for shortish casts you can rotate throughout the stroke. However with beginners, at all distances, you see early rotation leading to open loops. If the rod rotates before it is bent it is very likely that the rod tip will rise thereby starting a concave tip pa...

If we are having pictures, does that mean we can have graphs? :666: Seriously, I do like the graphic but would suggest "appropriate tension" to achieve "the cast I want" regards Vince IANACI Hi Vince, great graph. It appears that I am more satisfied than a normal person of my age, but I have yet to...

Re: The BIG THREE

Nice discussion for the new board. I always did like a diagram (and it'll be good to test adding pics). I give you Bill and Bernd's House of Essentials : - I like tension, better than "slack". It gives the caster something to do (manage line tension), rather than avoid - and is v.useful in teaching ...
