casting a shooting head

Hello guys,

I have a 24 feet shooting head (T130). Im having a bit more wind knots, tangles (for example forward casting straight into my rod) and tailing loops than with my average WF line.
I was wondering if the casting basics wich are recommender for regular lines apply to shooting heads or do I have to modify some of the mechanics of the cast?

Ive read somewhere, for example, that for shooting heads the rod should stop in the backcast a bit more backwards and outwards to get a more open loop. Any truth in this? any other recommendations? thank you,.
Considering this topic might have been covered in other threads, Ill settle for a link
cheers.
