It's good but unfortunately on the second day the yellow hi vis indicator came off with normal use. I have high ceilings, it it wasn't hitting anything on the backcast yet it still came undone. Disappointing
BEST FLY-CASTING TOOL EVER -
By: Ihuntfish from San Antonio, TX
I've tried them all...and the Orvis Practicaster is THE BEST FLY-CASTING TOOL EVER. I buy one for all the Beginner-Intermediate Clients I send on Fly Fishing Trips before they go when I give them a lesson.
Surprising Casting Feel -
I thought this was going to be just a gimmick but I was pleasantly surprised. It really does feel and cast like the real thing. This is a good item to keep the casting rust away for that upcoming trip to Montana or anywhere.

It works. Our cat loves it which also gives you a chance to practice hooksets.

Great Little Teaching Tool -
Bought this to introduce my grandchildren to fly fishing and it really works great. I think it is a great idea and can be used almost anywhere.

Great fun learning tool -
By: Bigcabezon from Santa Cruz, CA
This is the second Practicaster I have purchased.The first was for a friend who loved it. This one is for my granddaughter (4 years old) to learn the basics of casting. She was casting a fair line in just one hour. She will be trout fishing with me this summer. Can't wait.

The orvis practicaster is a great toy for working on your casting stroke. Nicely priced, and quick setup make this easy to use anywhere and anytime you feel like throwing some tight loops. Also, great for teaching first time fly casters like my kids.
Simplest but most useful to learn -
By: swilcanbridge from Yokohama, Japan
This device is simple but most useful for beginners to learn the theory of casting fly rod. As this doesn't require the large space, You can use it even at your home. I am happy for what I paid even by importing from U.S.A.
