    Mark someone reminded me of this and getting back to the original intent of this post.......you elude to a spincasting comp, if you were to do so would it be easier to cast said comp rod with a light weight plug or with a plug that was around the weight that the rod was intended for?

    to simplify it mark tell me if you have a spin fishing rod that is rated for a 1/2 ounce plug will it be easier to throw it 100ft with a 1/4 ounce plug or with a 1/2 ounce plug. Pretty simple!

    Mark, your knowledge of all this and Greggs knowledge are 2 different things, Gregg casts in a `Fulcrum` style already.
    Fulcrum casting and underhand casting are 2 different styles of cast although there are similiaritys, as in all good casts, but they are different.
    I know Gregg so can use the cute monicar on him, you dont know me......so dont......lol.

    Why change the subject I asked you a simple question that has a simple answer and relates directly to what this post was all about.
    Rod rated for a 1/2 ounce plug, would it be easier to cast a 100ft with a 1/2 ounce plug or a 1/4 ounce plug , with said rod???

    Nice Video of Steve, very old clip of him.
    having fished with Steve and your original spirit of this thread is one of using a lighter line when conditions dictated in a fishing situation, I can tell you that in a fishing situation he would use a heavier line if given the choice:thumb:
