When the rod leg is angled down and back after a late release of the rod leg the bead chain loop does roll out. You can see in the last video the rate of roll out increases when the rod leg touches the ground.

What is the source of the negative x force at the bottom of the loop that would be required to maintain a momentum change in the fly leg even though there is no tension on the end of the rod leg while it remains airborn?
