Thanks for the video. I know he said he doesn't work for break away...but by the looks of the jeans hangin' on the line...is he sponsored by Levis or Wrangler?? :icon_scratch:

Good stuff.

I've watched this vid at least 3x before it was posted here. Good info. Those sinkers are $$$, but I'm going to try a couple this summer.

EDIT: isn't mono better for a shock leader: cheaper, and it stretches during the high intensity cast?

For pure casting distance braid is almost always better. For fishability I believe a mono shock leader is better.

Anyone doing a Pendulum (sp) on a crowded beach is a JackA$$. I'm a distance caster, and I have seen people have breakoff's and it aint pretty. 100yards is easly acieved without doing a swinging cast, no need to kill anyone in the process.

Yep, there is really no need to use a pendulum cast if you are only wanting to throw 100 yds. A simple off the ground cast can easily outdo 100 yds.

Im sure 300 is more than enough most of the time.. However sometime 300-600ft will get you in fish that others cant dream of reaching. I have friends who can place a bait 550ft EASY, and they also happen to out fish most people.. Even still none of them do a swing cast
