Does anybody have any real life experiences with this practice caster and was it worth getting? They also offer a double haul add on so any comments on that is appreciated. Was thinking of picking one up to play around with during the long winter months.
I have one with the double haul kit. It works pretty well. You still need a decent amount of space and height especially for the double haul kit (need length ~20 ft forward and back). My kids use it without the double haul kit to practice their casting.
It is not a replacement for practice with a full size setup. I have room in my yard and find myself lawn casting a full size setup more often. The mpr uses yarn for the leader so it isn't great outside unless you have a fairly clean surface to cast on.
