underhand

I meant to make a short amendment on my last video and ended up making another underhand video from the things I thought were unclear. I tried to cover questions I thought a new beginner might entertain.

Tim, I notice when people underhand cast that they take a lower top grip, closer to the reel. Is this a standard thing in underhand? What are the reasons? Thanks. I am enjoying your videos and the down-to-earth approach you take. Keep it up!

Hey Nate, good questions that was one of the things I forgot to mention. Yes you can keep your hands closer together for underhand. The closer your hands are together the more tip speed you can create which increases the line speed. The further apart the hands the more power it gives the caster so for longer, heavier loads it helps to spread hands further apart. Glad you are liking the videos, Nate!
