That's great man, awesome. Just got in from a 45 min lawn session, starting to get it dialed in. Mike is right, have to pay attention to the loop. Rio Gold is better at longer distances, casts farther and stays airborne better but less feel in close. I need to tighten up the loop just a bit but slowing down and not watching the back cast was my biggest problem.
