i think my back casts are decent, but probably not as good as the forward stroke. (as is the case with most everyone) I should spend more time focusing on improving it.
Here's an interesting facet to this. I've got a combo spin/fly rod that i built on a 7'6" GL2 spin blank that casts an 8wt remarkably well. However, it's pretty stiff, and i can't make it do much without hauling. I've found that i can shoot line and cast long distances with few false casts better than any other rod.
Do you think the shooting qualities have more to do with the blank, the big spinning guides, or the caster?
