i had a sore elbow last year from casting big baits with heavy rods, it took all winter to heal. i’m fishing more this year but not casting as violently as before, i’m letting the rod do most of the work and it has saved my elbow. and my casting distance hasn’t decreased on average and my accuracy is better and not as many or no backlashes. put an elbow sleeve on it, it helps, rub some ben gay on it before you put the sleeve on.
3000 to 4000 a day is a lot, how much time does it take you to make that many casts?
