I think I did the similar with 5wt radian and 5wt barrio slx (not PUALD tho!), I could cast the whole line, but the softer tip on radian didn't seem to have enough control over the loop at longer end and felt quite shaky I would say.... so I soon changed it back to my SA med 5.Hi Andy
No, its a cheating setup, a rod that says 5 and a line that says 5 but really is a 7.. Rio single hand spey thing is, a MED 5 will do similar, but requires a bit more technique.
I'm very glad you got something out of the clip! Makes me happy
Do an overhead cast with 1o feet of flyline, with a vertical rodplane and get that line to fail to roll over, pleaseAnd yes, we can all take a length of line that too little effort can't cast, then use too much effort and cast it, well done.
Point remains, without technique in casting a line its going nowhere, any beginner can demonstrate that.

And nope, might be your beginners, I see plenty that manage to get a line to go somewhere, of course it goes further with technique, but I already said that
Yep. Unfortunately, instinct (among others) is sending the opposite message. None of that helps folks who want to cast better and (like all of us with red blood in our veins) further.I think the essential message is that technique is a more key factor than the force.

Had an idea for a while now to shoot some vids of casts to various distances in various ways and then crop out the line turnover and maybe the shoot. Viewers would be asked to guesstimate "how far that one went". Answers to follow. Might even edit out the back cast on some and just show the delivery.
My problem is not casting far, its casting far on a bank with stuff behind, or casting far without the running line catching grass and heather, how come that never comes up?
