    Default Lot of talent and experience to do this.

    Makes one wonder how long this guy has been at this. Pretty impressive.

    Is that a fiberglass rod? Looks very flexible.

    Very impressive casting.

    I don't want to downplay his talents, but he is using a baitcaster so he can stop the spool if you overshoots his target.

    Disco from my understanding those BFS rods have glass in them. Techno....I don't know if you are familiar with BFS reels....they were created and perfected in Japan. That is no ordinary bait casting reel. The spool....and bearings in there cost a lot of money. They are designed for casting much lighter lures than regular bait casting reels. You can't do what he does with with an ordinary baitcaster. BFS is becoming more common in the states but this guy is at the top of this game.

    I hear you. Maybe 13 years back I would have tried this. But now I have so many JDM spinning rods and reels just not enough money for me to go down this road. I used BC reels for years but when I was using them BFS had not even been heard of. I watch a lot of these guys videos even though I don't intend to do it.....a real joy to watch.

    That rod looks like a noodle and I can see where that's a benefit in the areas he was fishing..... That thing was bending to the rod seat.....LOL

    I believe I have the bait casting reel he is using. It was my first bait casting reel back in the 1950's. It is a Abu Garica Ambassador 3000. All red body and small pearl handle grips. I paused the video and looked closely at it. I still have mine.

    Very pretty casting, but where's the fish? Did he even catch one on that video? Just kidding. I couldn't watch it with the sound on, I confess.

    I'd like to take that guy dock-shooting.

    I had several also....but back then they did not have the spools and bearings he is using. High end BFS reels cost a lot of money. Many get into it with the cheaper reels out of China.
