A Single Spey for The Ages

...but you have to go here to see it.

... the pseudo-science of running-lines and matching heads has now devolved into such a miasma of obfuscation that it is a wonder that people are even not more confused....Erik Helm

Geir Hansen from Norway has been top Tournament Spey competitor many years. He finished 4th in 18ft Spey in 2016 World Championships.

During sweep he keeps hands high and rod becomes more horizontal and the idea there is to lessen the rod tip straightening downward trajectory in the end of the back cast to shoot the D-loop down. That technicue was more evident few years back but not so much anymore.

Rod tip is not lovered during Drift because it already comes almost horizontal in the end of the back cast but what is important the rod tip is not lifted before the forward cast is began!
