Can you describe how you do it in detail and what it does for you?
Thanks Bernd, I'll give that a try next time I'm practicing.Bernd Ziesche wrote: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 train to easily hit those 18m again.
It's not easy to efficiently use the hole stroke length right from the start to hit max speed at the end WHEN starting of a "dead arm position". Many struggle and start too slow! Using a bit lower forward stop lengthens the arc on the most effective side though. Combined with early release the lower stop still works.

The D-loop will not extend more than one arm plus one rod length behind the caster.
Why haven't you got one???Paul Arden wrote:Wouldn't it be nice to have a floating tape measure?
