Launching with a rod very soft, ERN about 1, is also possible to achieve good results, even with a line of a mass equivalent to a # 11 WT.
In this case a relatively high proportion of the energy espend in the cast is temporarily stored in the rod as elastic energy. At the same time the lever length decrease when the rod bends.
Definitely a cast with a full load rod.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
