Re: Analysing loop propagation

Not even one word about casting in the whole book. Interesting, so this is the document you refer to for a definition of the line (wavy) loop, but nothing is written about the line. Considering the superbubble which I call a Model in a sense of thinking model. That might be called concept as well. I...

Re: Analysing loop propagation

Thanks for your answers Michael The author speaks of the tip top guide made of a loop of twisted horse hair. If there is a chapter on a rod, there must be one on the line. Thanks to post an abstract. What is the title of the book (I have a few)? What you call a model is not a model, it is a concept....

Re: Analysing loop propagation

Hi Michael Can you please describe the tackle you are using in your videos: 11 foot rod ? #8 line? I attach u here the oldest source of a loop: and it says different. It also agrees with what is say in my superbubble model. The path of the rod tip makes the loop and is the loop. Bad luck we cannot s...

Re: Analysing loop propagation

Hi Mike You have seen gymnast playing with a ribbon attached to a stick I think, they make nice wobbles and then they suddenly change for circles: would you say those circles are like wobbles transversal waves since they just follow the wobbles? Wobbles are continuous motions so when you say that yo...

Re: The practical side of considering loops as waves: Teaching and Self Improvement

For me (and I hope most people here), playing in the abstract world of physics is not an objective in and of itself. I need to be able to relate the stuff I think about to actual casting and how I might improve my own. Indeed, the whole reason for thinking about the physics is driven by that need t...

Re: Analysing loop propagation

A word on string analogy In the teaching forum Graeme explains to us his interpretation of the mechanisms allowing controlling the line. The basic equation of transverse waves is used: tension in the string equals the linear mass of the line multiplied by the squared speed of the wave in the string....

Re: Analysing loop propagation

• Morphing loops • How snap casts work • Check hauling (forced turnover) • Explaining how pull back works I am impatiently waiting for your (interpretation of the) explanations Graeme. I do not care about the name used to qualify the loop (at least we can all agree it can be named a loop), and I am ...

Re: Analysing loop propagation

We spend too much energy on useless topics. The loop is not a wave then, so what? What would it change if it was? I can understand that the strict wave equations do not apply completely to a loop and what does it brings to knowledge?

Re: Analysing loop propagation

Graeme You create a completely artificial situation to justify your theory (how many followers). Do you cast vertical lines when you fish? In the north hemisphere at least, our lines are somewhat horizontal as we start the cast. It seems not to be the case in Australia. Please do not try to convince...

The tip trajectory. You may include a circle if you wish. At some time it does not represent a mend anymore.
