It's true that the path of the rod tip is what determines the shape of the loop.

The underhand cast tends to move the pivot point of the rod to the upper hand which helps to flatten the path of the rod tip. It also allows more power to be applied in a shorter stroke which works well with shorter shooting heads.

I think the main thing is to be aware of how our hand placement and application of power influence the rod tip during the cast.
