    because they are not the same build as Danny .His cast is used to get the best out of his physique .Casters of "normalish" build (if that's even a word ) have to work the lead more to try to compress the rod to reach distances to get near Danny.

    see what your saying but, there is plenty other giants among us.

    i have tried 3 techniques to date, pendulum, arealised ground cast, and the one mentioned. and had tips from a good few big hitters on certain casts.

    so whats the point in swinging lead away and then back? why not just flick to the side then hit with a progressive arc ???????

    the rod is not getting compressed at this point?

    obviously am missing summit ere

    Danny is probably ~30kg heavier than his nearest rival in weight terms, his style is very dependant on having a firm footing - it's simple and effective - however that additional mass helps lots.

    What works for one doesn't always work for another. If it works for you then use it. When you feel ready, get yourself down to the UKSF. The more competition at the top, the better for everyone

    Would Danny cast further if he used a moving lead?


    I've heard a lot of people saying that they have copied Dannys style over the years and yet, i am yet to see anyone actually cast like Danny

    I'm sure the other casters have had a sneeky go at the cast in practice and stuck with their own style in the end .

    Danny's built like an olympic shot putter ..so it it stands to reason that much of his leg action and to a slightly lesser extent his shoulder and arm action resembles one during his swing. It would be interesting to see him shot putting . His address position with his head lowered and over the right foot and holding the shot close to his chin. His right arm would be bent of course ... instead of straighter as when he's casting.
    I would class him as an improviser swinger [ someone who is happy to swing in their own way and not frightened to make changes if it improves their performance and consistency even though it might not look pretty in the eyes of the purist ]. I like his swing because its bare bones functional and has the minimum if any wasted movement. His lower body gets under way first in the forward swing , sprinting to stay in advance of and building up tremendous energy and coil in the mid section and his shoulders and arms come flailing through later rather than earlier . I particularly like the amount of lateral movement he uses towards the target in his forward swing , this is one of the secrets of his power . Turning on its own without any lateral movement just wastes the massive potential energy of the body . Large body muscles only work effectively when they are under a load . Turning without any lateral movement would be just like casting on one leg . The minimum amount of movement should be from right foot to left foot for an easy swing coupled with rotation.

    i have to disagree to even compare danny moeskops to a true athelete like an olympic shot putter is ridiculous, he is just big guy who is pritty over weight if were going to be onist, if a true athelete ever takes up tournament casting like an olympic javelin thrower for instance i think dannys days would be numberd.

    no offence to danny moeskops but he isnt a athelete in any shape or form, and to compare him to a true athelete like an olympian is stupid.

    hats of to him though he can thump a lead a long way.
