warthogsc's post about whiting rods got me in gear mode, so I have a question regarding my new heaver. I have a 12' penn battalion with a penn squall II 15 left hand casting special. I had a penn fathom II 30 on this, but couldn't get the distance i was after, probably due to the size of that 30. I'm very new to the conventional heaver game, and i'm just looking for some casting advice. I had a baitcaster bass rod growing up, but never used it much. How do you tweek/set your reel for casting? Any insight is greatly appreciated. thanks
