Casting Essentials: Power Application

Producer: Carl McNeil

Casting expert Carl McNeil describes the importance of proper power application in the casting stroke. “Power should be applied smoothly, throughout the stroke. That means that from the moment that you start, right through to the stop, power should be applied smoothly. And we call this constant acceleration. Lefty Kreh says the best way to think of this is to start slowly and finish fast, and that’s about the best explanation I’ve heard.”
