Something a little different

Postby Jeremy Schrader » Sun Nov 20, 2016 11:40 am

With a forecast for a nice sunny day and having a few hours up my sleeve thanks to Sue and Kath having a lunch engagement I decided that casting would be a good way of unwinding . As my casting has been a bit static at the moment I decided that i needed to try something a little different with the technique and therefore opted to start with a lower stance and turn. This is in the hope that it allows a better weight transfer and also slows my turn a little more. These are just the initial one that I have done and were done firstly with the 150 gram and then the 200 gram. I will continue practice from here on only with the 200 to ensure that I maintain form and don't try and rush the cast.

Here's the video from the session , by the way snapping a lead off during the cast isn't the smarts thing or most comfortable thing for the old body :oops:

Had another short session ( Only 4 casts ) during the lunch break and was reasonably happy with the progress. Hoping to get out on the weekend and put a tape measure over a few of the casts to get a good comparison to what I have with my other styles.
