    I'm not lacking the strength, but have some tendonitis/carpal tunnal issues, and thus sold my TFO 10' 5wt.
    Cliff and bloodhound- that wrist strap does nothing more that teach (for lack of a better word) muscle memory. Keeping the wrist straight with the tool and practicing casting is no different than putting training wheels on a kids bike. After practicing for a certain amount of time, you remove the training aid and you can either cast correctly or ride a bike.
    But don't use the JW wrist lock and learn to ride a bike at the same time.
