thanks Adam. Yes the guide with the fingers is very tough lol. Ive been working on stopping the rod. Ill make a new video in a week or two and see if I gain a few extra feet.
I had a quik look at the video the other day & it all looked up the s#!t! Your rod is going to fare down on forward stroke & final cast! On final cast, stop the rod higher & remember to STOP THE ROD! Also when you draw the line double hawling, make sure you draw it straight with were you stop the rod & close to your body! Rip that thing too! Also read not long ago in a salt book, after final draw, put your finger & thumb together like another guide! Easier said then done! I used to play in the livingroom in winter with the bottom piece of rod with reel atached & alastic bands atached to the stripping guide! Just to get the feeling of the DRAW DRAW DRAW!

Good point about stretching the line. Braided mono cores have a lot of memory. Out on the water before I start casting, I always grab a few feet of line between my hands and stretch it to eliminate the coils. Continue doing it until you have stretched the length that you think you will shoot.
