Linear Action -- [C1]
(Lee Kopman 1982)
 C1:

From a Generalized 1/4 Tag or other applicable formations.

Centers Hinge & Box Circulate 1 & 1/2 as Outsides Hinge & Trade; those who meet (Center 4) Cast Off 3/4 as the Others move up (as in Chain Reaction).

Ends in Parallel Waves, Parallel 3 & 1 Lines, or a Parallelogram (if outside dancers end on the same spot).

Dancers ( and ; and ) end on the same spot and therefore take Right-hands.

Notes:
• Everyone starts with a Hinge.
• When the Outsides start in a L-H Mini-Wave, a common mistake is for the Outsides to 1/4 In & Step to R-H! From a Mini-Wave, Hinge & Trade is the same as Arm Turn 3/4, hence a L-H setup remains a L-H setup.
• The final Centers Cast Off 3/4 can be an Arm Turn 3/4, or a 'Push' Cast Off 3/4.

From an unusual setup:

Linear Action But anything [C1V]: Do a Linear Action but replace the Centers Cast Off 3/4 with the Centers doing the anything call.

Linear Action But Cross It [C4]: Do a Linear Action but after the Centers Box Circulate 1 & 1/2, do a Very Centers Slither and then complete the call.

Linear Cycle [Plus] (Dave Hodson and Lee Kopman 1979): From a Wave or applicable Line of 4. Hinge; Leaders Fold behind Trailers (who do not adjust); Any Shoulder Double Pass Thru; Peel Off in direction of Shoulder Pass to end in Facing Couples. This is a 4-part call. From a Wave, Linear Cycle is similar to Recycle And Sweep 1/4.
