Dont let people get you down. Keep your powder dry and do your own thing. I have had people laughing at my casting for twenty years and still I really enjoy walking out to the board and letting one fly. I have never cast 200m but I have cast 200yds. I enjoy trying to reach my earlier achievements and the fun of trying new rods along the way. I have a CTS custom pendulum rod and a 14 and 15 foot Anyfish Anywhere-Southern Series rods that I am learning at the moment. When I get time I am going to get out casting with an overhead. I use them fishing but havent given it a go on the casting court yet. So much to do and so little time.
Some wont cast unless the day is sanctioned by NZACA. Scared that they make the cast of a lifetime and not get it recognised. I say just get out and do as much as you want. Beach casting is OK but nothing really matches that moment when you draw in a big breath and step up to the casting board. To hell with the hecklers.

Sometimes it is better to travel than to arrive.
