Last fall I got the hankering for a 9' rod so I bought a Tsunami 9 foot from flemings candy shop. The plan was to put another Akios cts on it but Tommy was out goofing off in the surf and it would be a week before he could ship me one. Since we were leaving for cape lookout in a few days, I ended up buying a daiwa saltist levelwind. I can cast it pretty well most of the time but I definitely get more blow ups and I'm thinking it's the levelwind that causing it. I'm not a great caster but I very rarely get blow ups with the akios even when trying to hit the moon. I'm wondering if I could just take the levelwind off or if I should sell it and buy another non levelwind. What say ye ol gear gurus?
