Default Issues with new line

Hey all, I'm fairly new to fly casting. Bought a st. Croix rio santo 5wt outfit. I decided to change the fly line with Allen 5wt floating (which is fine). My problem is, the load won't load at all, as iff it's a 3wt line. Can't double haul or get any distance. It's almost like it's way under lined. Is this normal with different line types/brands? Can I possibly use a 6wt line to help the rodoad better? Hope this doesn't sound too odd. Just confusing me. Thanks for any info or advice.
