I would agree with that, i have no idea what point you were trying to make now
Something we agree on, and then you muddy the waters again :thumbs:
If your 'preload' cannot be exploited what is the point of mentioning it?
Who said it couldn't be exploited?
But i would say that 'creep' rather than being defined by whether we mean it or not, is rather crucially defined by which direction you do it, the former tells you whether its a casting fault, the latter tells you what it is in the first place
Cool, so I unfortunately make a too big casting angle on my backcast (like the gentleman in Aitor's good video) I drift forward to lessen my casting angle because I want to throw a nice tight loop horisontally forward.. You then tell me I'm a daft ****** and are creeping :thumbs:
I'm going to add something for you to rip at, i use preload, and i also creep, and from what i can see the best casters in the world do also, they do of course use these with critical timing and to their advantage, i suspect you also do,
Preload is the rod bending before you bend it more by moving it in the opposite direction, i don't need movie clips or confusing words for anyone to understand this because its not that complicated,
With finite timing we can move the rod tip in the opposite direction from the line and increase rather than decrease the rod bend, i'd say thats exploiting preload, and i'd say we all do it to some degree, intentional creep if you like,
Where the real intention comes from in practical reality is preparing to do this, by sliding the rod tip with the line back or forward to where your tensioning creep can begin, the end of this movement is a fusion, as every move is maybe with the next
I don't think there is anything in this that you would disagree with? but i sometimes feel you would rather find something to argue with than build constructively on it.
Preload happens when the line is finished unrolling, creeping would be something you do while it is unrolling, so calling it creeping here seems like something wrong to do... Drift seems like a much better definition for something we mean to do, to get a better result...
Here I am arguing to build a better understanding, but you probably think I'm just trying to pick on you...
Creep is basicly the only fault that is named, and the originator really wouldn't like for it to be something good, but you can argue that with him if you want, I'll gladly send you his email.
