You obviously have dissected the cast more than I have that is certainly apparent. I believe Lefty does consider there to be two separate parts to the cast with the second being the final acceleration. To your point, I was thinking if I ever keep my rod tip travelling in a constant plane or if it is always traveling around some type of circle i.e. the analog clock. Wouldn't keeping it in line cause a tailing loop by causing the line to crash into itself (I guess that is a really tight loop ). I think it is always travelling around a short circle during the final acceleration. I will have to think about it some more when I am not sitting in a cubicle with people looking at me for making strange arm movements .
