Default Re: Low power on roll cast

I'm not the best one to give advice on casting but ....

First of all you need to get rid of all slack in the line before the initial pick-up.
Strip the line in until the leader is moving to remove all slack.

Next, The further the rod tip moves, the more distance you'll get. Don't be timid about moving the rod tip or even your whole casting arm well behind your ear.

Don't forget to accelerate during the cast and make a dead stop

The most important thing to remember is that the principles of roll casting are the same as for a regular overhead cast.... just without the backcast part.
