Tracking the lead
Well thanks to my beautiful wife I have a new high speed sports camera that allows me to see the lead right throughout the cast when the footage is slowed down.
I went out to have a play with the camera and was happy casting both the 200 gram as well as the 150 gram .
It is goof seeing the sinker when you view the footage on the bigger screen
Here's the footage for those interested.
Nice, you make it look so easy...been trying for years to swing or step with my left leg when rotating, never quite get it.
First time I was testing a Century Tip Tornado Super Match I caught a 40 pound Red Drum at Cape Point NC back in early December 2016.
Wind Picked up to 30 MPH on shore and that rod was still powering through it with 8 and bait.
Thanks for your input into the design.
I cast with a beach pendulum cast and I did try out the Century Excaliber T1000 last week that is one bad ass rod for Drum fishing in NC. I think it weighs about the same as the Tip Tornado but has greater leverage and slimmer profile, so it get the sinker on out there...
That is pretty dang cool!
Been doing a bit more work with the new camera and thought that you guys may enjoy seeing some of it
Will head out again today and do some casting with the 200 gram lead.
Try to keep those arms straight. Your losing power at the end.
Are you using the Garmin to track your arm speed? Or for something else.
The thing on my arm is the remote control for the video camera. Arm speed isn't a concern for me it is more about the lead speed and ensuring that the lead has the wides arc hence the higher speed needed for distance.
