Default Re: "Crack" noise on either forward or backcast

Fishing Bamboo and super fines a lot along with tip flex, My answer is YES let the line straighten completely behind you (should even feel a slight tug on the rod tip) before you start your forward cast. In other woeds "wait for it....."
The crack sound could also be the tippet hitting something on a back cast (not stopping arm at the 2:00 possition or breaking wrist)
