Latter two don't count as variables....
That's why I discuss it...

Why are they not variables? (discussing!)

D vs V is not a bad discussion. As Lasse points out it can be controlled by tip path. I'm unconvinced that's the only variable.

Cheers, Paul

App!? I'll have to ask a millenial... I still have a normal phone and use my typewriter to surf the interwebs...

I´m not as sharp as you guys on analyzing... however I can produce a V-loop with a certain tip path; it gets easier with more velocity/acceleration, but that's not a necessity. However, it could easily be I´m doing more (your variables...) than I actually realize... Well I hope there is more to it than I think, because that would mean, albeit unconsciously, I've mastered to control all those variables :upside:

Don't worry about the APP! All the videos will be appearing in this Video section eventually :)

I´m just fucking around - I've heard of the app (of course) - people say it's the best teaching/learning tool...

Out of curiosity: why giving it to the 'public' for free now?

That's why I didn't discuss it :p

Cheers, Paul
Hi Paul

You can't make V loop out of a D with pullback/reverse torque or vice versa
You can make both D and V loops with any type of rod regardless of material.

Btw. I'm talking about true D and V loops, not the optic illusions ;)

Explaination video please!


Ah I see (app and videos). I'll watch them and won't buy the app! :p Will buy an HT to make up for it in the near future tho!

I considered charging for access and discussed it with Flavio who was fishing with me for a couple of months this year. After very long thoughts on the subject I decided that it would be best for Sexyloops to give it all away. It's been almost 19 years since I wrote the flycasting manual. I see this having a similarly good effect.

Of course you can go from round to ponted; Lasse; the point runs down from the rod tip.

Cheers, Paul

Incidentally partly because of this we have new Board registrations. Discussion forums really suffer because of Facebook crap. We are building a new group of forum members who want to discuss fly fishing and casting, to a high level, and not what they had for breakfast. When they post for the first time please welcome them. I know you are all people persons like I am - at least those of you who I know personally. Please welcome these guys as you too would like to be welcomed. The Board has always attracted some really excellent people.

Many thanks,
Paul
