Very different casting along a tape by yourself in a park to standing on a platform, I agree!!
Tomo is a fine caster, saw some video of the shootout at the worlds, is it happening again in 2011?
I'll get the camera rolling when I can find a good day for it, if not before I'll take it to our indoor casting day in a few weeks. I would recommend the GT #7 it's a wicked line, carries really long and very stable. Superb line for working on technique.
You should head over for the Sexyloops gathering in May, there will be a lot of competitive casters there, quite a few from Scandinavia too.
