I've finally learned how to use a baitcaster fairly well....pretty good with casting without gettng a birdsnest.

Now, how do I flip? I've been practicin' and it doesn't seem to be flipping the way you see the pros do it. I'll get maybe a couple good ones and then a birdsnest. What am i doing wrong? Should I set my spool speed for the lure to fall real fast or slow or normal? What about magnetic control, does it even help?

Thank you in advance.

Turn as many brakes off as possible. You will want the reel to be almost entirely super-free so that it only takes a flick of your rod tip to put the bait where you want it.

Pitching and flipping take some practice, so don't get too frustrated.
