Pan, The accuracy I was referring to was the length of line out every cast..... Ok, For bass and a level wind, yes they can hit a bullseye etc all they want, just like with a singlehand fly rod. With a spinning rod, not near as accurate. When covering a run swinging, you arn't "aiming" for anything really, other than maybe a "spot" you have fixated on across the river etc. (of course, I hope you knew that). It's more important to cover the water thoroughly using the same distance of line out every cast. To do that in broad sweeps, if the lenght of line out varies 3-4 feet, plus you stepping down another 3 feet, you could be off 7 feet, coservatively. With a fly line and reel, the line stays out pretty much the exact same distance every time, so you are covering the water better.
