Does the Lyman kit have the ability to use hard lube? or just the liquid? Seems to me the stick is the way to go. Excuse me if I am using the wrong terms.
The Lyman kit is what I have been eying...It comes with a manual. On your say so I will probablly get the kit and manual at same time...once I get a handle on this stick lube stuff. Can you straighten me out on this?
This is where the GB forums shine!
Advice like this is "priceless"
It uses a hollow stick lube. It does not come with a heater but I have an extra one laying around some where. For what you will be shooting most of the comercial lubes will be fine includinng mine. With the lyman kit you will get some good stuff at a reasonable price to start with. Be sure you read the book at least once every couple of months it is full of info and you will not truly understand it until you are casting. I still find my self reading it. Just to bring my self back to basics.
Where are you located?? Reason is that if you can watch someone cast it will be well worthwhile. Reading is great--do it all the time, but if you can see casting in action you can ask questions and maybe have a hand at it yourself.
