Juro, good info from you. When I ran the saltwater school at Fishing the Cape I noticed good casters simply forgetting to let the line hand DRIFT back on the end of the back cast.... They would do the second haul somewhere down by their thighs.... That being done with good timing lets you FEEL the rod load much better.... and alows a second haul without the "strip down" by jerking it way more than necessary...... a second haul a foot down or so should give you all you need.... You see some guys jeking it down so hard and long that they are thowing themselves out of their waders... looks great but useless...John
