Postby roger de dodger » Mon Jan 23, 2012 5:08 pm

my last two sessions have been on steep beaches and man did i struggle :lol: reverted to a simple overhead thump as no matter what i tried my :oops: pendulum went out dead straight instead of going up and out if you get my drift ,i know i should have gone futher up the beach to a flat area but old dogs and new tricks :lol: if your pig headed like me would the brighton cast get me extra yards ? was using pully rigs with gripper leads ?
