Well here is my bit....

Rod reel line leader lead must ballance 100%

Slide rig with torium 50 bla bla bla I can do 150 constant 9oz no prob.
Then adding  baits can bring that down reel fast and thus more power is needed so i batlle with really big baits.

I use the P cast to do this ...... the trick with the pendulum cast is motion and timing and the use of your whole body.  Yes from head to toe.

Kaspaas al wat ek kan se is jy moet jou lyf weer 30 hou.

bietjie oeffening en dan gooi jy maklik skoon lood baie ver.

Dis nie n kwessie van geweld nie dis tegniek... met geweld kan jy jou finger op sekere plekke ook af breek.

It seems my casting has gone to the dogs,went down for a session and managed 105m on average with a clipped bait (piece of bicycle tube)and 7oz sinker. Tackle was torium30 and exage 1468 with .47mm XX and .80mm leader.

Doubt it has gone down so much.

The only way to have your cast in rythym and improve your average is to make 100+ casts a week, and for a competition angler 500 a week, especially in the lead up to tournaments.

Every year in this stage of winter, the who casts further and better comes out and every one gets drawn into the casting brag and rant and continued discussion of casting further etc, etc.

This is purely cabin fever and lack of fish and or lack of fishing.

Come the months with the R's and the fish are biting then non of these threads come out.

As for 150m with a slide rig (1.5mm leader) and 0.55mm line, over 150m actual distance (not line off the reel) will put you in the top 5% of all casters and Anglers in South Africa....... do the cast, measured and verified on a grass court and measure from casting point to where the weight has landed.

Considering the average surf fisherman throwing a 6 ounce off the beach with his 14ft and multiplier would a coffee guy generally get better distance with the same rod and sinker same length of rod that is.

I have that same set up but still prefer the multiplier. But I think it's more of a habit thing. I would say yes you could cast further with grinder. My one Galjoen/shad setup in 4 oz casts a mile with braid with a grinder. So my verdict would be hell yes...but all depends on the rig..rod reel line ......

Thanks nico one thing about grinders is that I get excellent distance with no wind but no distance with wind, is it just me or is this just a generall grinder downside?

The wind problem goes away with braid. It's always line diameter that bugs a grinder down because the line comes off in loops. But getting the right braid for your combo is always a bugger

I think I will just fish straight braid next time, was using about 40m of 0.35 mono as topshot, stupid idea lol as soon as the braid starts coming off the spool it feels like a nitrus boost!

Yes line counter on all distances. And yes practice makes better. It takes hour after hour to do that all day long.

Line counter can be up to 30m out on a 200m measurement as a result of numerous factors hence my suggestion of a casting range with measured distances.

We have a freshwater casting league in the Winter and 230m casters "Line Mate Measured at a dam" don't get over 180m when measured with a Lazer Range Finder.

I'm not doubting your measurements I'm just recommending a casting court and direct point to point measurement as this added some perspective to my, and other casting efficiency.

yes i understand what you are saying Enigma... I still remember my days as a papgooi junior with the casting trials as part to get your colurs. Marked of field is the most accurate.

Neil Mackellow has the best advice regarding casting. He explains the "Off the ground" "Pendulum" and pendulum adapted for rock fishing. My best advice is to super tune a baitcaster/conventional, it does wonders. You can throw lighter rigs and heavier rigs further after the tuning.
