The Rod-Load Model

“The fundamental problem with the casting model based on rod load is that nobody knows what a proper rod load is for a given cast; I don’t know of anybody able to look at the bend in a rod during a casting stroke, and tell if it is a proper load or not. Not only different rods will show different amounts of bend for the same cast, even every angler can get different amounts of rod bend for the same cast and casting distance, depending on their individual styles.”
