Default Re: Less force, more power. Contradiction or not?

RangerRich,

That was a very good post and analysis, especially from someone who's not an instructor. You are obviously very observant and in tune with your own casting.

Cab, I agree with you, too, that nearly all new casters have poor backcasts - largely because they are concentrating on getting the line out in front of them. The backcast should mirror the forward cast as Silver pointed out. To achieve this, it too must be accelerated to a hard stop, just like the forward cast. It helps enormously to watch it while false casting.
