The rod should be light and with a fast enough action. Especially for us Italians where method exists to launch with light lines and high speed. I call this method ICS (Italian Casting Style).
It is only right to thank the great master "Roberto Praiola"
One hand, to build from the ground up a rod, the offer various software with whom we can identify various "stress curves" that undergoes the apparatus during the launch. Obviously the variables, which are considered, are the following:
- Nr of Line
This is an example of the stress's diagram.
it is clear that to interpret, but before that, you can let out the curve must dedicate many hours of study. I add, with a person who can explain how to use this software.
The two best software that I known and most people use, are:
In both of them we find also the taper of famous manufacturers such as:
Cris Bogart, Wayne Cattnach, Garrison, Dickerson, Payne, Pezon&Mitchell, Hardy ... and others.
