Been trying a few different reels to pair up with a 9' rod for throwing surface iron (Tady C's, 45's etc). Everyone tells me that the minimum should be 30' but preferably 40lb line for this application. Been working with the Torium 20 and for kicks, a Torium 14. Why is it the size of the 20 spool is so much harder to cast without backlashes? I can cast the 14 forever (75+ yrds) with 3 oz weight and the line comes off so nice. When I step up to the 20 I can't wing it out there past about 45-50 yards without getting backlashes each time. Very frustrating!
