The overhang I expose prior to the back cast is only about a foot or so. I "shoot" (really just let it slip) a few feet prior to the forward cast. I find that if I let too much overhang out I lose control of the shooting head and I end up just tossing it instead of transferring energy positively to the line.

I've been Lefty Kreh's instruction on casting these lines: Don't false cast, make the slowest possible back cast in a small arc and a quick speed up and stop in the forward cast.
