I purchased a 9/10 short belly last week, took it out for a test run on a 13ft GLX last night and encountered a technical difficullty. The line loaded the rod and casted very nicely with a regular mono leader, but as soon as I looped on a 10' extra super fast poly leader everything went to he!! I have casted poly tips on a mid spey with a 15 footer, and never had a problem turning it over,granted thats a lot bigger set up, but come on! I consider myself to have quite a bit of experiance throwing tips(poly leaders-300gr.big boys) and I didn't anticipate this problem. My plans for this set up were to use it floating and with some poly leaders on smallish water . I don't really want to have to cut up a brand new line,but ya gotta do what ya gotta do I suppose :frown: Somebody please tell me my marginal casting was less than marginal and that I should be able to turn over a 10' poly leader with this setup!!!!
