Default Re: Casting Distance Issue

Hey jmark your probably running into the problem with the rod being to stiff. You should try a 9 - 10.6 rod with a slower action, more parabolic. The stiffer rod can't load properly with the light lures. Plus your reel should be loaded with lighter braid or mono drop to 30 braid and you will see a huge difference. I use a 9 ft. Lami and 10ft. st. Croix and they really whip the light stuff under 2oz. Matched with a Penn 710z and a 5000 battle 20# braid nice balanced combos. Good luck
