Is the perceived shortfall down to the rod or your casting technique? If you're not compressing the blank sufficiently on the cast to load it you will not be getting the best from it. Even Steve Ringer needed a session with Terry Edmonds to learn how to get his distance casting sorted.I’d only change something if it wasn’t working for me. I think there’s a bit of a ‘cult’ factor when it comes to some tackle brands, Tricast being an obvious one. Their 12’ distance feeder rod does not have the casting power I thought it might have. Only a 12’ rod but as a distance rod I would have expected more. Others have said the same although I bought it based on other comments. So I’ll be keeping it for shorter chucks but looking at getting a longer more powerful rod for longer casts.
