Your going from one extreme to another and it will take some adjusting. I can't see your cast so I'll give you some broad advise that should help. If you've been fishing a glass rod I can almost guarantee that your going way too far into your backcast. Shorten you stroke drastically and start from there. Make your stops a little more abrupt. I would bet that your waiting too long on your backcast and missing the sweet spot.
