Default Re: throwing tailing loops like crazy

I'm afraid this is incorrect.

A tailing loop is caused by a concave path of the rod tip. What you've described adds a convex movement at the end of the cast.

By creating additional tension as the line is unrolling, it could turn a cast with a smooth turnover into a bounce cast that doesn't travel as far, but I see no way it could produce a tailing loop.

Your rods do look very appealing though.
