Video 13' TTR and I : - )

Postby JPS » Thu Mar 18, 2010 8:26 pm

Well got out after work and had a few hits with the new TTR . I was trying out a few things as i come to grips with the new rod and how she performs with the various weights. The video shows me hitting 150, 125 and 100 gram sinkers as well as me also hitting the deck when I turned too fast. :oops: :oops:
The shorter overall length is an absolute pleasure for me and I can really get the rod moving as well as the lead :mrgreen:
It was good to get the video out once again and highlighted the benefit when training, in the shots I can clearly see that I am hitting the rod too much with the right and even though I have had good initial position with the left I am not getting the left arm pull correct.

Looking forward to the next training session tomorrow with the new girl :D :D :D

Feedback and sugestions very much welcome

i think the shorter this rod the worse it will be ? why i say this is because it doesnt stay bent for very long . i also noticed this with lees cast the rod is moving so fast that it hardly bends , one way to see this is if your distance drops the faster you hit it ?
