I am currently casting a Daiwa SL30SH on a Loomis 1448 using 20lb test line/50lb shocker and 8oz of lead (my usual fishing setup). My distance is maxing out in the 350 foot range and I am trying to find ways to get more distance. I feel like the 1448 may be too whippy to generate more distance. Has anyone else had this experience? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. :confused:

steve, i've got the same loomis and 350' with 20lb test is not bad at all. that rod is at it's best with 6oz. and bait. the loomis reacts very well to an OTG cast, perhaps you can add distance that way.
