: I've had a pretty easy time learning to use mine. No major injuries yet. I credit this to two things:
: 1. The whip. I've got a David Morgan. Quality tools are easier to use any day of the week.
: 2. I grew up flyfishing. I understand the dynamics of the throw and know what it should look like when done right because it's essentially the same as casting a fly. Granted, there are some significant differences, but my training consists mostly of figuring out how this is different from something I already know, rather than starting from scratch with a rather strange motion.
Brother, if you can successfully fly fish, it doesn't matter WHAT you use as a whip! You're going to hit what YOU swing at! I tried fly fishing once in my life. I don't think my uncle EVER got all that line out of his apple trees by his pond. I can throw a whip well, but I still won't attempt fly fishing again. I understand rod and reel to well now. Regards.
