Re: Having trouble feeling the load in the backcast
Sage ZXL with Rio Grand fly line seems to be the ticket at the moment. I paid attention to the loop last night and also slowed down the rthym a bit. I was overpowering the rod. Muscling it was making a mess. Slowing things down got that nice gentle laydown of line right on the target track. Grand is probably a bit too heavy, especially with 35-40 ft of line out so will throw on my reel spooled with Gold and see which is better. The ZXL seems to have some feel to it if I pay attention. Was hitting some 45 ft targets pretty well during my practice session. 45-50 feet seems like a pretty far cast to me and would be adequate on most of my home waters.
