What am I doing wrong...

Post by sam.truan on Wed Jul 10, 2013 9:59 pm

Went for a maccy bash yesterday tried for a little bit more of a drop on my cast but seemed to clip the ground a couple of times? Is it bad timing? Or hitting it to late??

On pendulum cast

It's timing most likely to early.. So your pulling the lead into the ground rather than it coming round

But I think it's the last bit where it's hitting ground when it gets to the otg stage would that still be to early?

its very difficult to say what you're doing wrong without actually seeing the cast. its all pure speculation otherwise.
it could be a multitude of things, some not even mentioned in above posts.

I was told once that if this happends to make your drop longer.. maybe try that.. not sure if it will help and dose seem odd to make it longer rather than shorter but works for me.

Hi Sam

A video would be helpful to see!!

However if you have added a bit to your drop slow the cast down give the lead  time to climb above the tip ring. In fact slowing any cast down should improve style and distance.

A few of you on here have been nagged for 2 hours about slowing your casts down:roll: !!!!!!

I watched u few times Saturday when fishing,, even tho I'm learning I wouldn't say your cast is fast to others Iv seen.. but your lead is not far off the ground when it comes around,, I'd say about a 2lt coke bottle height off the ground

Since I put this post in I've been out practicing and trying a couple of the tips some people gave, they have worked and have since been using a longer drop with out hitting the beach Smile. Just want to say cheers lads all the tips have helped. Also meet up with Shane for a cast it didn't go to well as none of us checked the tides and it was going out headbang managed a couple of casts and got some tips of Shane, and was also told the cast looks smooth and slow. Now I have casting stuck in my head Smile. Thanks again to all that has gave info
