I'm throwing an 8wt 2pc Meridian and I'm not thrilled with the performance I'm able to pull out of it. I'm looking for input to help determine if its my casting or maybe a poor line choice that is holding me back. I've tried SA Mastery grand slam and Wulff Bermuda TT on this rod and both have done awesome at the typical range (20-40') but I can't get the distance I need for those longer casts. With both lines it feels like the head may be too heavy causing the line to run out of "gas" past 40' or so. What lines are others using on this rod? It does feel like a very fast rod for me, so the problem could be that my cast doesn't have enough power to load it properly. Thanks for any input.
