Hi Hardy -- no, no, I was actually directing this to Sexyloops -- but I understand that you feel this way too.
Actually -- I
feel that hauling works via this route as well, I disagree with Ed on this one....with respect, because he was a heck of a nice man when I met him

Since it has been conclusively proven that rod bend doesn't contribute more than, tops, 25% to line speed whereas 100% of haul hand speed is contributed directly to line speed, I think the concllusion is in Paul's favor. Edit So, even if the haul added 25% more bend to the rod, that would amount to only 6 1/4% more to the line speed using the 25% figure for rod bend contribution.
+1. I hear you. Maybe I came across as agreeing with the rod-bend theory, but actually I'm about 90% sure I don't. I agree with you. I was just relating some of the information I've read on the sexyloops website. It's good stuff.
And of course -- who cares if it works
