first day w/525 mag

first cast 110 yards with mags on 8! great for me considering i've never owned a casting reel .I switched to mag setting number 7 on my fourth cast and KABOOM !!It blew up in mid flight. Is this normal?
Also when bringing in line do you level the line with thumb on the crossbar of reel or with line between pointer finger and thumb? Rod butt under arm or in crotch?
I felt more comfortable reeling in line between thumb and pointer finger with rod butt under my arm but I think it may be difficult to bring in a decent sized fish .
