this thread is like a bad coin.
Yea, I need help too. I can't cast worth a hell, but it is fun
Spey pinning is da BomB
Why did you move the reel forward? the rod you are using is designed for a centerpin with reel back further than the levelwind position. Reason for this is so that you can keep the reel rubbing on your baby finger ( brake control) while casting and fighting fish.
Wow! This thread could get interesting! I suppose that there are a number of ways in which one might cast using a center pin. I suppose that it's never too late for old dogs to learn new tricks.
now that is funny.... your not the first or last.
Uh, Actually it is a CND 13' spey rod. If you put the reel where you say, it is unbalanced as hell, and you cannot use your forearm for leverage, and your wrist would get beat up.
Nah, spey trolling is da BOMB
sorry, had me fooled, our centerpin rods up in BC are pretty much the same position as that spey rod. Here is a pic of a sage centerpin
didn't want to offend anyone but I just found that video funny, he actually named the cast after himself.lol.:clown:
I run Loomis rods or raven with sliding rings and run my reels as far forward as I can. The reel towards the butt is old school. With it way forwad you get more rod control, with casting and while fighting fish. I also stick the butt near my gut or hip on long rods to relax my arm. Really good leverage with your forearm while fighting fish.
Tallflyguy if you come up this way pm me and I can meet up and bring some rods for you to cast.
Count me as another who decided to make a commitment to centerpinning. The Islander reel is already ordered and I'll be placing an order for a 13' Loomis (model STR1563GLX) centerpin rod in January. By the way, I found the new "Center-pin Secrets" DVD by Frank Amato Publications to be useful.

Exactly! And I've 'killed' close to an hour watching all the video; gad there are a lot of them if you want to take the time.
Rather lost as to you and Charles would be of this opinion. If you're not interested in the thread, why are you following same, let alone posting to it? Just wondering, just wondering .....
Jake is this open to other members from the board? I wouldn't mind meeting up at PSFC to learn how to cast a pin rod.
Stay tuned. We'll be doing a class in January.
