Evolution of a spinning-down NS with a constant baryon mass Mb on the Jf plane for selected values of Mb: 2.3 M (blue line), 2.325 M (black line), and 2.35 M (red line). The thick red segment on the 2.325 M sequence denotes the back-bending region, which is never reached during the angular momentum loss evolution. Superimposed, the spin frequency of the massive NS PSR 1614-2230. For a detailed description see the text.
