All rods can cast, that's a given.... So for the last time, the fishing application should dictate the casting requirements of the rod. That's what I was saying. So if you are fishing a few meters away, in a freestone stream, "it does not matter how well the rod casts a full line". That's the point...
    Andre, I've never been "on" it, so there is no need for me to get "over" it. Your post seemed contradictory to me, so I made mention of that fact. You have also now have added "casting a full fly line" as the criteria as the difference between how a rod casts vs how it fishes. Anyway, this is going to go back-and-forth again, so I will leave it at that. I take your point to heart, thanks.
