D Loop or V Loop?
"D Loop" is the common name for the big loop of line that forms beneath the rod tip and behind the caster during a Spey cast. It is called this because it looks like a big uppercase letter D. Recently some casters have begun to use the term "V Loop" to denote a very dynamic version of the D Loop. A "V Loop" looks sort of like this:
and it is a very aerodynamic and powerful version of the D loop, especially useful for distance Spey casting.
Really like the videos. I watch them over and over and pick up new details every time. Amazing how smooth you make the cast look. I have a tendancy to nod forward on the delivery and have been trying to stop that problem.
