Constant Load?

One of the all time favorites of the Cm/Cl crowd an me. Some of you newbies may not have seen these.

... the pseudo-science of running-lines and matching heads has now devolved into such a miasma of obfuscation that it is a wonder that people are even not more confused....Erik Helm

I believe the "sustained anchor" was coined to differentiate "skagit" in that all movement (rod and line) is stopped - while the anchor digs in - from traditional spey casting which is very minimally anchored (Touch -&- Go) . The casting stroke is purposely broken at a point during the set up and the sweep. I don't believe the rod can actually stay loaded through the entire transition from sweep to forming the d loop and through to the forward cast. There is an unloading of the rod - however brief - and momentum keeps the loop from crashing behind same way as a slight pause in spey casts ...
