With all due respect of course you express an opinion that does not help me figure out any reasoning behind it.
When someone says that it's important to be on either side of a spine for the energy in a rod to be kept in line during a cast, not much explanation is needed.
But when someone says that wrapping guides out of alignment with a rigid area running the length of the rod, I have to ask...
specifically what kind of casting does this suit?
thanks in advance
