If you overload the the rod with a line one number higher might help you cast better.

On my Z axis I have a Rio Pike Taper floating line. Its new, I am going to give it a good cleaning using Loon Line Speed and see if that's an improvement.

Incidentally the Pike taper is close to a Clouser taper which is what I have on my 8 wt Flight. At least so I have been informed. So it is a fairly close comparison line wise. I would think that the 9 wt. should be able to throw similar or larger flies the same distance or more than my 8wt. Which is why I bought it.
