Seems whenever my casting starts to fall apart I realize I am working too hard and gripping the rod too hard. If I just lightly cradle the rod, the line flies. I mentioned this in a post below and it got me thinking. It is amazing how just a slight tightening of your grip can make a cast fall apart. This is mentioned some in the videos but really have not heard a reason. Certainly with a single handed rod your can put a death grip on it and whle you will wear out faster and it won't be much fun, a death grip really does not destroy a cast like it does with a double hander. I suppose it has to do with both hands working together and a firm grip does not easily allow this to happen?
