Vince,I've never heard of Haun, what impact do vertical drag forces have on the loop?
My mistake, it was Hendry, not Haun.
Study his analysis on the old board and I think it will answer your question. It is not a short answer.

Distance casters look to delay/slow the turnover of the line (so the distance shot goes up). They do this by casting with overhang. I'm therefore suggesting that perhaps the the rotational speed in the loop decreases as the heavier line enters (thus maintaining angular momentum). This would result in the line taking longer to roll out straight. The other hypothesis, (loop morphing tighter to maintain angular momentum) suggest that loop propagation speed would be unchanged.
Paul, Lasse - any thoughts on this?
Is it because the fly leg shortens or is it because the front taper enters the loop?crunch wrote:Perhaps this video has aleady come up here in SL forum but there is a slow motion of a snap phase where happens the line loop speed incease when the line loop fly leg shortens.
This also happens in Aitors DN video but the forward movement doesn't occur until the rod leg hits the ground.Walter wrote:crunch wrote: Good video. It appears that under some conditions the loop and fly leg accelerate when the rod leg is stationary, i.e., the rod leg is not being shot or pulled back and we know this because the rod leg is on the water. since we don't always see this pronounced of a difference the question would be why we see it here.
