That's a new one to me - might be part of my problem. I should have indicated I'm trying to cast a new Sage Xi3 10wt I just built - I can cast my little GLoomis 3wt with ease. I would think there shouldn't be any difference between the two but somehow I must be trying to "help" the 10wt - sort of like my golf game . . .
Thanks Duane, I'll check your video.
