Re: What Did I get Myself Into!!

Re: Beginner: Different technique for slow rod?

I purposely did not put the reel in the center on every one but drawing B. Leaving the reel in the center and moving the rod tip from 10-2 can only be done by bending the wrist and causes a convex...

All wrist casting is not 10-2 and not all casting from 10-2 is with the wrist. However, most people who think of 10-2 in their head cast with their wrist and the rod tip travels in a convex arc...

Re: Beginner: Different technique for slow rod?

Soft glass rods are easily overpowered whichh means they bend more than they need to for the length of line being cast which is going to cause the opposite of the desired result. You mentioned "When...
