Default Re: Reels to balance a rod?

Energy is the capacity to do work, nothing more, nothing less. Momentum is the product of mass, or your fly line, multipled times the velocity it achieves during the cast, and has a vectored direction involved and this happens to be the definition of Momentum, right out of most any Physics book, more or less. Energy is a scalar amount that is just a capability or capacity so this situation doesn't pass the Energy test at all.

Check out the last link above in my post as the very learned author of that describes the physics of casting above and beyond and it's momentum that's the key as he so aptly says and describes!
