Captain Phil Posted May 21 Share Posted May 21 Being older myself, I have experienced the adverse effects of arthritis on my fishing. I am right handed. When using a spinning outfit, I cast and crank by holding the rod with my right hand. After some time my right hand gets fatigued and I start to get cramps. I do not experience this with a casting outfit because I change hands after each cast. I cast with my right hand then hold the rod with my left on the retrieve. This balances the pressure on both hands instead of one. Modern rods and reels are also much lighter which also helps. When you are young, you don't think about these things. Some day you will. 🤣 5 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
