I am cast a 9" wt rod with floating line on a 9" leader

Any help is much appreciated!

I have always made an effort to have my right foot slightly back of the left so I can turn and watch my back cast straighten out before executing a forward cast. Overpowering the forward cast also creates issues as well. That seems to be my problem as I transition from graphite to glass. Smooth and relaxed!!!
