Default Re: Casting Distance Issue

Thanks for the information, just picked up a New old stock mitchel 500 XS casting reel to mate up with my 6'6" MH im6 basspro shops rod.
Spooled it with 50lb Calcutta braid, so i'll use that for plugging as i can heave
that thing like a rocket.

As for the sea striker 11', if i have 2oz or more on, i can launch that thing pretty damned far. just the lighter weights become an issue.

I figured its kind of weird, ive been fishing for 20 years and fishing for stripers for 15 of those years, but just got into surf this year. (still doing boat on the freshwater part of the hudson too)
