Grooves back

Earlier in this thread I mentioned I had lost my stroke,it wasn't until yesterday that I found it again,as simple a cure as it may seem now, it took almost a month and a half to figure out what it was and I still have some doubts as to whether the fix is the cure to the original problem .I was originally dealing with tailing loops ,no power, and definitely no distance.I tried holding my top hand (right hand) higher on the upper grip,actually locking the line right at the area the upper handle meets the butt end of the rod,from the first cast it was like night and day,everything was back, tight loop,power and distance and was the same for all casts that followed. I'm sure there is a logical reason why this changed everything,but I shall not question the results,I feel like I 'm casting better than last year.
