Question

Ul 8' Reel and line combo with Rod?

I bought the 8' UL crappie maxx rod and I have it paired with the crappie maxx spinning reel with 10# mono/braid hybrid line. I was wondering if there is a better reel or line to put on the reel as it seems that my cast distance is very short. I have a different 6' UL rod and reel combo that can cast twice as far with the same type of jig. There seems to be excess friction with the amount of eyelets, but on average, I can cast around 30-40' with this combination. Any tips for a better combo to increase casting distance?

answer 1
Drop down to Crappie Maxx 4lb line. It is strong, if I lose one its cause of me not re-tying or playing the larger fish out. Casting is easier and more distance. I throw 1/32 jigs where I want. Line condition spray also helps....

Have you tried lighter line or added a sinker for bunk?

If the sinker fits and you're using a float, it will also make your bobber less noticeable when a fish pulls it under.

Just saying.

Good choice with the 8 footer, but for distance, you could have gone 10 or 12 feet. I use a Zebco Pro, the Zo2 model. It casts a long way. The drag is only fair, but otherwise the reel is tops. I know you have a spinning kit, so drop down to a 4 or 6 pound quality mono.
