the rods I am using are single handed trout distance rods between 9'-9 1/2' in length.
A lot of the guys in the club are using the Loomis blanks that are available from the American Casting Association. Once I get better with the single handed I'll hopefully start concentrating more on the double-handed. You mentioned you start your long stroke as a pull accelerating to a push before the final power stroke, do you stop at full arm extension?
Speak to you soon
