SkagitMeister, have no worries ,what your journey has done is highlight the issues,problems each style of cast brings with it. Unfortunately there has been so much nonsense written on the subject, usually by people trying to reinvent the wheel for their own ends. They are also the very first to criticise. Honestly very little has changed since the days of Grant and Edwards. Casting a double handed rod requires two hands to perform,that's why it is called a double handed rod,long line long stroke, short line short stroke easy to remember. If anyone doubts me watch that wonderful caster Scott Mackenzie in action. Keep them coming, no change please.
