Those are some great thoughts about lines, even someone who's just now starting to pay attention to this long-line distance stuff. "Mass Orientation" seems to be my main focus right now, if I undertand correctly what that means - for me it's the taper, i.e. wf, dt, triangle, ... Is that what your alluding to Greg?
Bigger picture question from a potential budding competitor very near the senior group age: What distance does one need to cast to not be a complete waste of time for everyone at SOR (embarassment aside, and don't need to even make it out of qualifictations rounds - just don't want to waste everyone's time)? Thanks.
For me, the glass is neither half-empty nor half-full, but rather twice as big as it needs to be.
