velocity distribution of the mass elements on the fly rod shaft

In additional contemplation to my work “Experimental investigations on the fly rod deflection” I looked at the distribution of the velocities, which mass elements of the fly rod have. Over the duration of the cast it becomes clear, that the velocities of these mass elements vary significant to each other due to the deflection. Whereas the highest velocities are located at the middle mass elements at the beginning of the cast, the highest velocities are located at the upper mass elements at the end of the cast. So the highest velocity shifts towards the tip of the fly rod. This is another clear indication for the (“complex”) redistribution processes taking place in the fly rod.
