    Is the problem an open loop?

    Can you describe the problem you are having? Can you be more specific?

    Your going from one extreme to another and it will take some adjusting. I can't see your cast so I'll give you some broad advise that should help. If you've been fishing a glass rod I can almost guarantee that your going way too far into your backcast. Shorten you stroke drastically and start from there. Make your stops a little more abrupt. I would bet that your waiting too long on your backcast and missing the sweet spot.
    The best way to a fisherman's heart is through his fly.

    try shortening your back cast and speed up the cadence of your casting. give it some time and soon you will be master of both worlds!!

    Jackster...any chance going up a wt in that line would help him feel the rod load? It might slow the BVK down a little and feel more familiar to grassonfly..?? -Mike
