Default Re: Tuck Cast, Pile Cast Causing Tangles?

Its possible, but I think its more likely that you're producing a tailing loop beforehand and that's causing the tangles.

Its easy to attempt a tuck cast and get a tailing loop because you need a hard stop to force the tuck, and this can lead to un-smooth application of power that produces a concave rod tip path.

Focus on getting shorter tuck casts without tailing loops first, and gradually increase the distance you're going for. Try getting the tuck more via stopping the rod tip high than by changing your power application.
