Default Re: A recent problem in my casting

I agree with Jackster that it does indeed sound like a tailing loop is causing your problems. Applying the power too early in the stroke is most likely the cause. I used to have worse problems with it (learned the sport while playing DT in college) but have less issues with it as I get older and weaker.

Make sure that you are accelerating your casting hand through the stroke smoothly. The goal of this is to get your rod bending at a constantly increasing rate. Doing so will ensure a straight line path of the rod tip, not the dreaded concave path that leads to a tailing loop.
