Or you can buy a higher quality reel and tune it and keep it lubed and use the correct size line and correct wighted baits made for your rod and reel and dont ever cast into the wind and that backlash stuff wont happen nearly as often. Buy Lews is my best advise. Chew tobacco,chew tobacco,SPIT :secret-laugh:

Yes that works but that guy is pulling too hard. Went you kink the line (v-shaped line as he calls it) you can make a weak point in the line by doing so, especially with fluorocarbon. I will do this method sometimes but I don't pull as hard as that guy in the video. You can see where the line is hung up without pulling as hard as this good ole boy did. This video below works better on bad back lashes using both techniques without harming your line but you still have to pay attention.

Those are better links thanks.. Agree about the weak kinks.

Never know when you'll get the fish of a lifetime..and loose it cause ya didnt continiously check the line for knicks / kinks / re-tie ect..

Not to be blunt (any moreso than usual) but there's a lot of value in getting out in the yard and learning to cast. When you're fishing, you are thinking about catching fish more than casting. In the yard, you don't have that distraction. Get out there with some old baits sans hooks and do your homework. Then when you get on the water, it'll be second nature.

That helped me keep from blowing up my reel while learning to pitch. I'm still not real good at, though. I think I am just reinforcing bad habits at this point

That guy has like 40lb mono on that reel...it's a lot easier to get un-nested than 6-10lb...
