that is a very hypnotic piece, the casting and filming and space music work together. What kind of line are you throwing?

Dang It that video is spell binding.

You see in slo-mo that the line develops a leading edge and it lifts aerodynamically as it is propelled in a tight "loop" through the air. You can also see all of the energy imparted by the caster into the rod which courses through the line as it is sent along towards its target. Amazing footage really.

That shape of loop can be seen from side in two dimentional pictures on good casts. But the loop which line makes is much rounder and has more width than height because it is mostly parallel. And it becomes parallel as anghor usually is to the side of the track rod tip makes on forward cast.

That part which looks to have upward angle is where line comes towards the camera and makes 180 decree turn.

that was a st croix 14ft legend ultra painted white. windcutter 8-9-10 line. Thanks for the comments folks. Parker did a great job panning the camera to track the line.

Video Problem.

I've been unable to load video following several downloads? Has it been pulled or what am I not doing? Always looking for visual mantra's. Thanks.

Marvelous. So ZEN. Masterfully done. I love the speed changes within the loop. Just great.

Very instructive. Several technique surprises, at least for me:

(1) The "power" for the backcast and forward casts comes more from compact hand/wrist snaps than from arm movements.
(2) Arm movements are minimal and very compact.
(3) Hands and arms stay in front of body, not aside nor above nor behind the head.
(4) The switch cast rod "stops" that power and transform the initial tailing loop into a gorgeous, efficient loop are at 1 o'clock on the the backcast and at 10:30 - 11 o'clock on the forward cast.
(5) A weight shift is sometimes apparent, sometimes absent.
