How to Cast Gaelforce Touchdown 70 Clearwater Special vs NextCast FF70
Folks - 'any suggestions on how to cast a Gaelforce Touchdown Clearwater Special (the line with Poppy/ZZ Top in Filson on the box) vs the NextCast FF270? I have FF270s in 7/8, 8/9, and 9/10 and Clearwater Specials in 9/10 and 10/11 and can't figure out how to cast the Clearwater Specials.
The freakin' FF70s launch like a Scandi head and land like a 747 on floats...(and out there a wee bit, too). The Clearwater Special goes like a SuperCub (trying) to take off with 1000 pounds of gear on board.
The Clearwater Specials are designed by folks who are casting freaks, so I figure my technique is crap. Any suggestions on how to get the best out of the Clearwater Special?
Disclaimer: My casting style is Monkey Man (Let It Bleed); jacking the FF70 to Keith cutting riffs works fine. Can someone name the tune that works for the Clearwater Special (John Prine sewing"Angel from Montgomery"?, Michael Timmons pushing through "Angel Mine"?, Mick Taylor cuttin' "Can't You Hear Me Knockin"?). Methinks Timmons....but that aint workin'.
