    Fascinating subject, chaps...

    Interesting videos thanks for the links Alan

    There's something wrong about the chain analogy mind on the D loop. Something triggered my memory banks reminding me you've been thinking long and hard about this for ages Springer...

    Back in 2008 to be precise, on this classic...:

    Looks like I was talking pants, not for the first time



    PS Bazza's tightest of tight loops are sorely missed!

    So, technically, the anchor DOES NOT help with loading the rod, but DOES play a huge part in the forward motion of the line?

    Alan, would you please elaborate for me why a cast can be effected from a smooth concrete surface but it is is not possible to do so from a lawn?

    An anchor is required to allow rod loading but in itself does not load the rod.
    Make sense?

    No its not. Watch the videos Springer posted earlier in the thread. The anglers rod loaded before any anchor touched the water.

    I agree....to an extent.
    The videos show loading to some degree however they cannot convey the weights or forces being exerted/felt on the rod by the caster.

    Try simply flexing or false casting your rod (without reel or line) at home on the lawn and the rod flexes without a line even being present. Is this the rod loading?

    The video also shows that without a proper anchor a successful waterbourne cast cannot be made.
