Default casting problems?? new fly line

hey everyone. I am new to fly fishing. been doing it now for about 8 months. Here is my problem. I just bought some new flyline.... Cortland 555 Weight forward 6 weight floating with dynatip. I am using a ST Croix reign 6 wt rod. I am having problems on my cast, just before my line straightens out it drops really fast toward the water.. I am having to spend more energy trying to keep it in the air than increasing line speed. What is happening, I had some cheap cortland 333 on the pole before and had alot less troubles. I would figure the more expensive line would be easier.. guess not. Anyway, whats happening.... please help me out. Im thinking its the dynatip, but not sure. Thanks, John
