Default 3 wt. question--

I have noticed lately that my 3 wt. likes to track not straight. (notice I am placing the blame on the rod and not my extraordinary casting ability.... )

For reference, I can punch a heavier line and longer rod (my 9'-- 5 or 6 or even 8 wts.) into a tight 2 to 3 foot wide opening into standing dead wood from 30 or 40 feet away. With my 3 wt., The cast doesn't punch and unroll straight-- It is analog to a slice in one's golf swing..... kind of unrolls in an inside to outside path.

The rod is 7'6" and is (of course) a 3 wt. I can get it to the distance, but not a straight unrolling of the line.

I'm guessing a straight loop at 40 feet is possibly too much to ask of a short(er) 3 wt. rod.???

Any input? Thanks.

Tony
