    I agree 100% with that statement.
    I'm talking about slack in the line at the beginning of the D-loop stroke.
    Being able to start my d-loop stroke with no tension on the anchor gives me more anchor to work with at the end of the D-loop and then on the forward stroke, this helps when casting skagit lines. I think you see this effect the the video I posted

    Hey Charley, you missed my other question........do you think the cast will work if a poke is made that does NOT line up the anchor? :clown:

    Hey I said I don't disagree with the other benefits that have been pointed out, like lining up the anchor. Not trying to get in an argument of "tastes great" vs "less filling"

    Just messing with ya Charley, but the main benifit of the poke is lining up the anchor!

    No he can't. He tends to say things that make no sense. He probably heard someone say it somewhere and is just repeating this info. In other words, he has no idea what he's talking about.
