Help with unitech

I meant UNITECH, not OTG...sorry about that.

I am just not getting the distance I am looking for (about 200-250 ft). I'm not in any clubs and can't seem to get this cast right. So I just wanted to ask this one question. When you are casting with a conventional reel (I'm using a squid, 20# mono, 40# leader, w/5-6oz and bait, no shocker), what is the approximate angle of the cast if you're looking from the backside of the caster? Is it near 12 o'clock (perpendicular) or slightly at an angle at maybe 1 or 2 o'clock? If the question needs further clarification, please ask away and thanks for any help.

Addict,

Firstly increase the 40# to 50# it will act as a shockleader, its for fine for 5oz sinkers.

If your rod is around 12' then use a 5' drop, the ideal path of your rod will be around 1:30 mark.

I hope this helps - Led.
