That's the Lambert distance cast that he taught me and I used on my CCI test! One back cast!...one forward cast! Thanks for posting this Bart!... Very Happy

Bump......just a great video! Dispels the myth that bamboo is "slow"......its all in the taper.

I think the word you are looking for is "flimsy", not "slow". That rod looks pretty slow to me. The way I understand it is that slow/fast really doesn't have anything to do with distance, it has to do with the flex of the rod and the "speed" of the stroke one needs to use to properly load it.

I have a friend who is a MCI who is moving back to the old school Scott S2S (I think that is the model), which is a very slow rod. He tells me that the slower the rod, the longer the caster is in contact with it during the stroke, and hence the greater the control the caster has over the rod.

I have always found casting slow rods to be a bit of a challenge, but once you get the timing down they are typically rocket launchers!!! Now as for bamboo...that is an entirely different critter and everything I wrote probably doesn't apply. I'll leave that for the experts to debate.

Reminds of a friend I had in the Navy that would always brag about being able to "Cast into the backing". I later found out he only had 50 ft of fly line spooled on his rod followed by backing. I see what you did there.
