I'm also a qualified instructor and Nimrod has a good point in what he says wrist straps are a proven method to show but not necessarily prevent wrist break.

I would suggest (as any instructor would)., get yourself a lesson with an instructor. You won't regret it and your problem will be solved.

Good luck.

Not really true what nimrod says in going too far back and forward opens loops, i haul and go far back ,you can go almost 170 degrees as some distance casters do and have very tight loops ,convex rod tip paths cause open loops

I believe you are " breaking your wrist", -- the rod butt, is too far away from your forearm when casting. Try using pressure on your thumb to keep the butt close into the under side of your forearm. , and remember the rod and the forearm must work together.When you break your wrist, you lose up to 60% of the energy, hence the sloppy cast.The other more positive remedy is to use a strap to keep the rod and the forearm together. I use a velcro strap. which can be bought in DIY stores.Cut it into 18ins. lengths.Do also remember tthe 10 o'clock to 12 o'clock, casting - power arc. Go too far back and too far forward and you " opn" the loop, , which costs you distance and accuracy.
Hope this helps.
thanks for all this info ill try all these tips tomarrow
