The rod that Joe uses for this video is a custom-built ultralight spinning rod made from the top of a 2wt fly rod blank. These casting styles require a “slow” rod with a deep, gentle bend. He is casting a 1/16th ounce casting dummy on 2.3lbs line (actually 7x tippet material). With this setup, Joe consistently casts 40-50ft with incredible accuracy.
Special thanks to National Instruments for use of the video hardware.
