Hmm somehow I don't think that little knee dance technique will cut the mustard on a wet cold and windy night on Rossall beach in December with 6 or 7 Oz's and a big bait after cod!
That having been said it's always nice to see folk working on technique developments that may produce a solid working variant.
The rod was a Super Surfllite all glass fibre (pre carbon) Penn 100 multi. plain bearings. Distances for me were all in the 180+ range, for my mate they were in the 190's with a couple just over 200.
Over 50 years ago and the only real advances have been magged reels with fast bearings and carbon rods which recover faster than glass.
