Rod bend in roll cast

hi Mathias, a friend explained to me that my reply the aerial part of the line in the D-loop will make the rod bend a bit more. (for equal force applied to the rod) was incorrect so please ignore it. :) i also hadn't noticed that this topic was in the tech-anal section. i don't like it here... doubl...

Rod bend in roll cast

The rod bends but not because of the weight of the fly line but because when the rod is moved it will bend due to acceleration. hej Mathias, mostly, yes. of course the aerial part of the line in the D-loop will make the rod bend a bit more.
