I had never contemplated it, but this could indeed cause tailing loop issues.
Yet another is making too long of a haul, which could also result in the end of the downward haul occurring too late. Work on making a short haul that starts about mid-way through the casting stroke and ends before your rod hand stops. Don't worry much about the force, just get the timing right. Focus on what that well-timed short haul is doing to your loops and line speed and then carefully add power from there.
