casting problem

Post by Guest on Wed Oct 17, 2012 9:47 am

I have recently started using AFAW Tournament match rods, I love the bite detection and they can cast well if you get it right, but as im starting to get the hang of using them and im stating to bend them right though the butt section and when this happens I start to lose control of the cast, ether goes left or right not striate out??

Im only asking as I used my Diawa 130xm rods last night and I can cast them striate out every time, and these rods have a pretty much solid butt section.
I once had some Zziplex vmax f2 rods and could not get on with them because the butt bending in the cast so I sold them.

So, what is it that I would need to change in my cast to use a rod that bends so much?

Sounds like that you may be just rushing it a bit more the more you get used to them. Trying to eek out those extra yrds. This can cause timing issues and wayward casts. Unfortunately its not a simple answer without seeing. but maybe the stiffer butt rods are keeping you slowed down.

Yep that sounds like it could be this, they are also longer than the other rods, so yes it could be a case of slowing down. Cheers

Most casting problems will be helped by Very Happy anglers slowing down the cast!!!

Bring back the v max 2 I thought BEACH fishing rods should bend a bit in the butt

When I get the same happen Dizzy it's always when I'm trying too hard, if I just relax and slow down it doesn't happen (it doesn't go very far but it goes where I want it too)

Yeh right. Not so good when your mate is fishing next to you, eh Dizzy Laughing

I think your cast was pretty slow and controlled really. The only thing I notice is you lift your left leg and move it round at the end of your cast. Couldn't tell if you were doing this to get more rotation, but it did seem to happen quite late in the cast. Could be causing you you stray off straight, especially with the longer rods.

Alternatively, you could go back to your daiwa's and sell me your tourny matches Wink

If you're using a step in your cast then make sure its early and foot is planted before you start to move with rest of body. Step rnd leaving arms behind, head looking up high, left arm will follow high, giving optimum position to smash the sh** out of it. lol!
