Re: What am I doing wrong???
Interesting. The past year and a half, I've been fishing bamboo (modern) and modern glass. The timing was completely different than a plastic rod. Picking up graphite when stillwater fishing, I've found myself throwing at least 25' or more than I have before. Graphite rods I think hide a lot of mistakes and the slower rods you have learn a lot more. I was not a bad caster before, but using slower rods, and changing the timing and style has spilled over to the graphite, improving my distance there. Try a slow rod for a while, learn to cast it and watch youself grow.
