Getting someone that cast the pendulum... and different styles of pendulum... oh yes. there are different styles... seems to be lost cause locally... or does it.
Recently saw good examples of Hatteres cast being done on 15ft rods.
Have been up and down casting field seeking on my own... used carp rods...tried over stiff Century rods..
point ... yes you do not need to cast far to catch fish... have good examples of that also...just peek at my avatar... but have good examples of what the distance can put you in range of.. do not do club scene... so would not know whether South African cast is only method handed down... just know very few people that can do pendulum and to add to that... high swing tradition full pendulum...

Rods in picture are mine...both pendulum rods... have coasters on....just recently got them...one is dedicated ground cast rod but can pendulum with it. Shorter one is dedicated pendulum rod as tip is in fact softer...have picture of Neill McKellow on them... known as PPT rods...Penn Performance Tackle.... very old...90's........ I can do pendulum low and high swing... ironically not good with groundcast.... whether I do it right is different story as I had to teach myself.
Pendulum cast with either multi or grinder. On clip of SA distance championship on internet see SA guys concentrating on low pendulum swing

Good form there.
Penn Pendulum PPT dates from early 2000's yes? Did you bring it in yourself?
I'll stick to my early model Tip Tornado; much prefer to the T1200 I had

Have a look for New Squall II 15 DCS as a fishing multiplier. (UK version is the Mag4 I think) - nicer arrangement of the (new) knobby mag position comapared to say the Fathom II 15 DCS

Got for bargain locally..2 rods identical.. groundcast tip thicker and stiffer was 14f3... shortened to 13f3.. now mean beast... gonna serve as all rounder... friend has TT sport... like it ... 15 good reel to cast but I empty it without much effort... wanted casting special but squall was available locally

Squall I is nice, but I am very keen on the II version because it has the easy access side plate - one screw RH plate off (like the old Squidders) brush out, rinse, fish.
