Bruce Richard's commented about the size of the butt section of the leader and that it's diameter should be about 70% that of the line tip. I found that on two rods my butt section was undersize in diameter. I made changes on the rods and the affects were positive. It was like lawn casting with only the fly line; the turnover was smooth and gradual. I also noticed different lines had different tip diameters (using a digital micrometer). I ended up using the proper size Momoi brand monofilament. This line was plumper and more limp than Maxima (stiffer and smaller dia.). Bruce noted limp offered a more desirable affect. Try it you will like it!
