hi, after injuring my neck,one side effect was strength in my right arm was diminished. This made a big difference even though i am a lefty. after rehab,all rods over 7 foot are no longer used.Spin rods and reels nixed for surf because of distance. in close i cast one handed,,far two handed.I have switched to a 7 foot ISCA 1170 med shakespeare and a black max spooled with 10 lb.(most of the time) . After trying out many casts i settled on the side arm cast...believe me it works....great distance...I think the side arm cast would preform well for some one casting from a wheelchair.
