I got a new Guideline DDC for my 12'6 8/9 Lecie rod, one line size bigger (9/10), and cut down to 36' about 480grns. Spent a few hours this morning casting and can't seem to hit a reverse Single Spey with any consistency. I can do it all day long with my 7110 and a 8/9 cut at 36'. Sounds like I screwed up cutting that 9/10 head so short...what do you think? I guess I can use it for heavy flies, tips and more skagit type of casting. Anybody else have problems with this cast with a short head? I'm thinking this is one cast that really likes the 3.5X rod lenght to head ratio. Or maybe I just need more practice.
