wow wow and wow.....what a rod!! it is a pure joy to use and it casts like a dream. it has mabey put a few yards on my cast, but the main thing for me is it is soooo much smoother than the carbon metal.

Plus it bends niceley 8) 8)

Iv a good one for you guys why not try casting one step further by starthing off the cast facing the buildings and bringing the rod right around in nearly a 280 degree swing that will add another 40 yds plus give it a go :lol:

i have a bit of a phobia about that. i tried it once and me finger slipped and my lead went in a undesirable direction. also i got a burnt thumb.

Lol its hard allright took me a long time to master that stroke but it really sends it out much further I cast the opposite side to most due to one side of my body being restricted in movement so its nearly easier for me to cast like that rather than a normal pendulum.
