Glad you mentioned that. Thank you. Thinking the 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock position, I got it backwards. Wasn't thinking right. Stop on the 10 o'clock position on the back cast is what I should have said. That way the rod loads correctly.
For distance casting I do take the rod back to the 2 o'clock position.
