I think that we would see the same with an oval. In fact I don't know where that "constant tension" motto comes from.
If you take Lasse's first vid as 'a firm stop and pause', (it not a sharp stop but it illustrates) then try to cast by softening the stop with a continual circular movement you get a... continual movement, a very, very narrow oval cast if you like,
The tip may well be counter flexing in the same way, i don't know but the forward and back casts flow into one movement,
When i do this i see a distinct difference in smoothness and line tension, no sags and less energy, i could only attribute this to the lack of pause.
