Also one of the things I would do is that when I would start my rollcast going back, I would have my rod tip low and have the water drag line out and then lift it up into the rollcast starting point. Well I was wondering if this is bad because I heard is causes your fly line to twist.

Any repeated OVAL casting motion like a Belgian wind cast will cause a line twist.

"Put quite simply this cast is a side cast in the back cast, followed by an overhead cast in the forward….. The disadvantage of this cast is that it throws a half twist in the line every cast. Half twists add up!"

The Belgian Cast

So if you roll cast by bringing the line back low and to the side and then cast forward overhead, I think it will twist. Same motion, same result.

If you bring the line back as in a standard roll cast with the rod overhead and then cast overhead, I think the line won't twist.

Well after I striped all the line, I would have to do several false cast or roll casts to get the same amount of line out as before. Are there any tips on how to get all that line out with not as many false casts?
Have you ever tried shooting line on the back cast as well as the forward cast?

Most folks only shoot line on the forward cast, but if you learn to shoot line on both, you cut down on the number of false casts.
