Exclamation Did I miss something?

Trying to improve my long-word-spotting skills. Anything I missed in this grid?

The best word I saw was RECASTING, and I stared at it for much longer than three minutes. (I saw some promising parts, like CIRCUM- and MULTI-, but couldn't put anything together.) Let's see what others come up with.

I was staring at the ELASTIN in the top-left.

INSULATING - 9
ANIMATING - 8
CIRCULATE - 8
INANIMATE - 8

Thanks. I'll look for some of those in the future (especially NONCIRCULATING).

I copied this and then discovered that I was a letter short, so I filled it in as best I could remember. This was not a situation of "almost found the word and ran out of time", but more of a "I know there was a better word in there, even though I set the longest word mark". And so I found "indomitablenesses". Is there a better one?

If we're just going to throw a bunch of boards out there, I know there is something better than METHYLIC on this board

Did it show any 9+ letter words? The only other longish word (if I haven't embarrassed myself enough by not even seeing CIRCULATING (let alone the NON- version) on the first board here) all I can find is HEMOLYTIC. Same length & probably same point score (if not less).

I've played lots of boards where I can find good pieces & just can't put them together, but was convinced that much better words were still to be found. Aside from trying to look up & use a Boggle solver, posting the boards in this forum seems to be a decent way to find out, as well as to add some entertainment.

I know this is epitomically irrelevant, but I just missed COUNTERINTERPRETATIONS for two new records

Seeing it too late is a pain, of course, but seeing it at all is a really good sign. Next time...
