Back cast loop

So when was the last time you looked at the loop in your back cast? Any idea if it is the same size as the loop of your forward cast?

Or is that forward loop nice and narrow and that back loop, a little-bit wider, or maybe a whole lot wider.

This is real casting challenge for a lot of us. I know a caster that will get nice even loops and then, space out a bit, and maybe start using a bit more force or power than necessary as he picks up the back cast. Before long he will have an 20-inch front loop that and a 40-inch loop in the back. Not good.

So why do some casters blow out their back cast this way? Well in this case, the caster was just applying too much power, too early, and overpowering the back cast.
