I have a very hard time envisioning doing this and not throwing wider loops.
If you pin your elbow the cast must pivot around that point. This has to mean that your casting hand swings in a convex arc with the rod tip and line following that arc.
To get a straight tip path of the rod it seems you must lift your elbow on a normal overhead cast.
What am I missing here?
