Re: Frustrating time casting my new rod
I learned to cast on a fast rod as well and it took me a bit before i could regularly feel it load up. Just be patient and keep practicing and it will come together. Lessons will make a big difference in helping you get the mechanics of your cast right.
My rod was a Redington as well. A Red.fly2. An inexpensive rod but had good action and was quality for the price point.
Just keep at it.
