<font color='#000000'>A good cast is a function of the forward movemnt of the rod aided by the compression of it by overcoming the inertia of a lead weight.It would seem that if the compression could be applied before casting a better cast might result. A 3ft plank was taken to one end of which was screwed a 3 inch barrel bolt and it&#39;s staple which was bevelled one the inner side with a file.A lead weight was filed flat at the end,drilled and a screw eye inserted which was bent slightly.This was inserted into the barrew which was greased and shut enough to trap the eye. A bracing angle was screwed to the side of the plank to act as a pivoting foot trigger and attached to the bolt by cord.The line was attached to the weight and a good bend put into the rod and the trigger was stood on sending the weight hurtling to the horizon. &nbsp;Well er ,no actually it went about 30 yards. well you can see the principle which might have some application. Back to the drawing board .I&#39;ve just bought a yard of bungee cord &#33;</font>
