Well after a break from casting I thought it was time that I got things back on track and started to do soem serious practice and get the video out to ensure that I can focus on some of the things that I am doing wrong but nor realising it.
I decided that i would take my own advise and seriously concentrate on casting the heavier leads and to that end got out my Penn 525 Tournamag and matched it to my Century Tip Tornado Sport and 0.35mm main line. I chose the 200 gram lead as it very quickly tells you if you are rushing things .
casting down on the beach I started out at what I thought was slow but as I soon foundf out it wasn't with the load being very noticable and my left arm not coming into play at all on the hit. Way to much right arm push and theright hand passing the ideal 1.00 oclock position that would then allow me to get the benefit from my left.
Have a look at the video footage and you will see what I mean. I will be working on this for the next few weeks and will only be casting the heavy weight to make me focus on thechnique and timing before I try and power up on the lighter leads.
