Re: Always throw a hook or tuck cast
Without seeing your cast it might be too much power.
Too much power can cause all sorts of problems. Too little power just makes the line dribble. Try less and less power until your line lands too relaxed then add just enough power to just straighten the line at about belly button level at the distance your shooting for.
Generally, the line will follow the rod tip. What you are probably experiencing is the rod tip overbending at the stop with the line following that motion.
