Here's a method that great grandpa would use.

A 6" piece of tire tube or the rubber from a slingshot.

One end tied to the swivel and the other tied to the lead.

It gives you distance like you never imagined.

 

No skills necessary. :D

This is anybody!

 

These techniques are practiced on zoned action

8 and bait rods, 13 feet or so.

 

can't emphasize enough of the importance of having your arms

fully extended from the beginning to the end of the cast.

You're up at bat and stepping in to the pitch, cast. ;)

 

The reel placed to close to the but and you can think of it

as being fisted when you're up at bat. Opinions vary. :)

This is the distance casting forum. Not general fishing.

 

I use a reel seat not coasters. I'm right handed and hold

the spool with my right thumb. My left pull hand is on the

butt section of the rod as you can seA in the video.

 

On a overhead thump the approach is practiced different.

This is mainly practiced in a crowd when safety becomes

a major concern or factor. You can achieve good distance

but not near as close as a full blown groundcast.

I am well aware of what forum this is.

I was trying to understand what your meaning was with the following statement:

 

"The reel placed to close to the but and you can think of it as being fisted when you're up at bat. Opinions vary"

 

I assumed you meant reel placed close to the butt, not "but" however the rest I am not sure of. A Baseball term?

Thousands of anglers world-wide are right handed and thumb the spool with their left (hand) thumb especially in the word of distance casting.....

I'm not a tournament caster but I do practice there methods.

I don't have a rod with a reducer and coasters which I see it as

choking up on the bat. I'm a avid recreational angler that rides

the rod like a witch on a broomstick or placed under arm while

fighting the fish, no bucket. In my neck of the woods. Striped bass AKA

Rockfish are the sought after gamefish from the surf and I'm

a firm believer in the motto that "Distance Matters". The problem

with this is zoned action and parabolic. The parabolic will not

throw you off as you're perched up on a rock. The zoned action

bites back and that's exactly what you don't want when you're

perched up on a rock. The anglers in Montauk are a elite group

of lure fisherman that use spinning tackle such as Van Staal reels

and braid with parabolic rods to forcefully pull stripers out of rock

work that are commonly caught over 30 pounds. Me personally I

like a wide open beach at extreme distance and light line with the

behemoth at the end of the cast. I'm high and dry. :)

Mark McGuire, Barry Bonds, the home run derby. The kids love it.

Here come Jose Conseco and Sammy Sosa. That's what this is.

He leans back, shows the pitcher the numbers, steps forward and

tanks one in the upper deck! ;)
