Frustrating time casting my new rod
My 8wt TFO cast very well with my 8wt line. Can cast 70 feet with a couple hauls. My 4wt is a different animal but still lined with 4t and can cast just fine.. Be sure your not trying to force your cast forward. Just try to feel the line and the road load. Also watch the rod load. I know forcing your forward cast and casting forward before the road loads it will cause the line to collapse. Also just forget about hauling for now and keep your finger on the string and just get a feel for the rod. Doing this helps me out a lot after casting my 8wt all day then grabbing my 4wt.
