Re: How far can you cast?
Actually I have measured my casts recently at the park. I was checking three different rods that I had purchased with two goals in mind: First, how far could I cast with each of them and second how much effort did it take?
One was quite a bit inferior to the other two on both counts. It just felt kind of noodly and not as "crisp" as the other two.
I'm not too concerned about how far I can cast but this is a good example of how measuring your cast can be of use to even an average caster such as myself.
