Hi Roy

I only had two casts with a Blue Marlin, for the price I was very impressed. The first cast went 209 meters and the seccond went 216m, it is super light and makes the weight you cast seem insignificant.

Great rod!!

Yes very interesting and having seen a "Japanese pendulum cast" it has similar characteristics to the current world champs style. In other places I have spoken about the similarities between the tournament casting and some Karate moves, perhaps the relationship is proven by the Japanese them self’s,...
