Just back from the pool and I got the "silky way" back :)

blind leading the blind... ;)
My guess is that you were losing the "silky feeling" when you were engaging the forearm and moving it back with the elbow moving forward.
Do no focus on the forearm at all! Just move the elbow forward without thinking of the forearm! - That solved my catch and made me find the silky feeling again.
