If the concept is, as proposed on the DVD, that it is 'easier' for more accurate anchor placement in stage 1 of the double Spey, then it is another move to learn for what is a very straightforward traditional cast.
The way to learn correct anchor placement, and in consideration of the direction of final casting stroke path of the double Spey cast, is to work with the same length of head during practice, until you have 'got it down'.
Simon demonstrates on the same video set, and everyone learns something new each time it is viewed, how to correctly place the achor in the double Spey, and how to correct improper placement on subsequent casts is mistakes are made.
I do think that the addition of this spiral cast to the double Spey set-up probably complicates matters unnecessarily.
If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles (spey rods). Doug Larson
