Your rods do look very appealing though.
Appears as though lefty is talking about the tip tailing down...no?
my statement "Stop you cast on the horizontal plane of the end of the cast and dont let the tip move toward the ground (or down at the stop of the forward cast)."
maybe my wording isnt quite on.....
