I fail to understand how a longer/shorter loop through the channel would affect the way it gathers. When I have experimented with a channeled whip I found that gravity was the determining factor is how tight the channel was drawn. Short of putting something in there to keep the channel from tightening all the way I could not determine any difference the length of the loop made.
