"filming the dangle," now, you be careful there.  ;)

Especially at a bad angle :)

Wow! Well done! Excellent demonstration of the pendulum cast.

Noteworthy is the perfect orbital path of the ball. It is very efficient as the ball does not break out of the orbit during acceleration.

Amazing form & he looks like a very powerful guy.  One thing I couldn't quite see clearly, but is that a braided mono shock leader?  If so, that's a new one on me.  Perhaps an old trick with distance casters or is it just my old eyes paying tricks on me?

He casts left handed like I do so this was really great to watch. I was able to see the technique in a way that is easier for me to grasp

You got that right. I have never heard a drum fisherman even consider them. Casting videos are great and no doubt that guy can outcast (probably all of) us in the field, but in reality, guys like me just look at that video and say "That is great. Lets see that with a cob head and 8." Almost has the opposite of the desired effect and certainly doesn't make me need one. 

 

If you want to sell some, you need to find someone who fishes all year long and get them fishing one all year. Someone who catches a bunch of drum and can tag you on FB and all that BS. Some one with street cred who can provide constructive feedback through real world trial and error. 

 

Also for what it is worth, everyone is running 13 foot rods for drum. Well most everybody. I bet they say, "That rod is only 12 foot." with a dismissive tone and put it in the factory/introductory rod category. 

 

Don't get me wrong I am intrigued by some of the lighter rods you offer, but I am too satisfied with the heavers I have to try something new. I bet a lot of guys are in the same boat. 

 

Our new field tester Blake Haydon out of Virginia Beach will test our 12' and 13' Black Hole Cape Cod Surf II heavy rods for drum.
