Good advice, Tim.
Another useful tactic when attempting to slow down involves lining the rod towards the heavier end of the grain window. Since the overall energy (momentum) present in the cast is described by both mass and velocity, distance will not suffer in most circumstances, and the cast will often "feel" more powerful and more forgiving in term of timing.
The heavier (or even more concentrated) weight bends the rod more deeply and the slower tempo it encourages minimizes unwanted anchor movement. Loops are more open, but that is often desirable too, depending on payload.
