I am casting a 12' diawia sealine -x surf rod and a large okuma spinning reel with a 4oz sinker . I have been practicing my pendulum cast for a long time but can still only cast about 100 yards at best i need to add about 50 to 60 yards to my cast. Please Help.

thanks for any info

Tim04,

Have you cast 'off-the -ground' ?

I only ask as it is the basis for the pendulum power casting technique.

There are other methods to put a baited trace out a long way ;)

What pound test line are you using and is the reel properly filled so there isn't too much line friction during the cast? On spinning reels once you start going much over 12-15lb line you will see a drop off in distance because the line is springier and the level drops faster and induces more friction on the spool lip.
