andy, it is good to hear from you buddy. hope all is well at home.
it was just my day. the casting gods were with me. i hit three over 600' that day. and only one off the court.
the rod i am sing is the new quattro for backcasting and the reel is the Abu sports rocket.
frankly, i must share any accolcades with the guys that provide with me support day in and day out.
the good training that you and peter gave during the x-casting clinic is turning out to be invaluable. james is a great motivator. earl is a great coach. charlie is a raconteur and trainer. bob provides earnest insight and critigue. jimmy gives me technical support and sage counsel. anthony (remedial tony) is my nemesis. [incidentally everyone at sportscast is always encouraging me to excell]
so you can see i am surrouonded by a great cast of characters.
so it is all good.
andy, oh yeah and tres deserves some credit too. [i thought that it goes without saying that hatteras outfitters is one of the premier sources of quality fishing tackle on the east coast]. he is always fishing for a compliement.
Threw 10 and 12 oz. with bait on the north beach last fall and winter for stripers and drum. Given the proper space and I avoid crowds like SARS, a very easy cast to throw a lot of weight a very long way, it the need arises. My one concern was the reel has to be in the low position. After watching South Africans catch sharks with the low reel position, drum and stripers were not a problem.
