Fred, the "hinging" makes perfect sense! I never really thought about that. The exposed loop line I have is a 5 weight for overhead trout casting, not spey casting. And you are correct, it is exposing the core line to create a smaller profile.

Jay, thanks for the vid links. they make it look so easy!
