V loop questions
Has anyone got any vloop shots at maximum loop formation
from an overhead point of view ?
Is it just possible that....
A v loop isn't actually a V at all ?
Ok, let me explain.
I cast many other styles, surfcasting, etc, etc and from years
of research we discovered that a wider rod arc makes the sinker
run wider. This in turn makes it go faster.
So, is it possible that the V loop is really a D loop side on.
From a visual perspective it would look like a V but in reality
its just a much bigger flatter D loop that is generated by
a) a wider rod arc
b) higher line speed as a consequence of (a)
c) deeper rod loading and bigger possible belly
as a consequence of (a) and (b) ?
I could be wrong, but one of the very very best V loop shots
on the web resides on Mr Mackenzie's site.
A BIG loop seen side on BUT....
with the lifting of the rod to make the forward stroke the
V could be in fact just the flatter D loop showing us the tip
of the rod has changed plane.
I can see how V loops in the forward stroke are achieved through
a straight tip movement but...
In no place I have seen does a loop formation ever have a straight
Please, can someone explain this.
