Re: throwing tailing loops like crazy
I have no idea what Lefty is talking about other than moving the rod hand in a horizontal position.
If you look at the video you will see that when he demonstrated throwing a tailing loop himself, he stopped the rod much higher after exerting much more force than in any of his other casts which did not tail. This caused the rod tip to RISE above the straight line tip path at the end of the cast.
Look at the position of the rod tip when he is demonstrating how to cast WITHOUT tailing loops. It is perfectly horizintal to the ground. He may simply have gotten his working backwards in that video, I don't know.
One thing for certain, he does NOT shock the rod when NOT throwing tailing loops and he DOES stop the rod tip lower.
