I spent the day fishing this rod on the Salmon River today. I have it lined with a Rio Midspey 8/9. I find it casts well up to 60 ft but once I try to throw the whole head my cast collapses. Is this my lack of casting abilty or is the whole head too much weight ? When I was setting it up I was torn between the 8/9 and the 7/8 but was told that the 8/9 would be a better choice for a less experienced caster. Any input would be helpful.
