Most people have trouble hitting 80 feet with a good double haul. One more thing, you don't need to change lines either. I hear a lot all the time about it, saying overline it. I hate it. I hate it worse than sand in my eggs. I can underline and hit 65 - 70 feet.
Sand in your eggs...never had that feeling. I've had sand in my clams and that wasn't so bad. So what I'm gathering is that I should be able to hit 50' even with a WF line without too many problems. I've never fished big water rods like you "spayed" casters so I will have to look up the single hand spey cast. I'll check it out and try a couple other things mentioned. I'll make sure I'm not letting my D loop slack up like Randy suggested; don't think that I am, but I'll check it out. As far as Ard's T-Snap cast...is that a two part cast?? I'm not sure I got the point of the cast from the youtube stuff I could dig up.
Thanks for all the suggestions, hopefully some of these help me out.
